1) I'm using delphi 4 client server , I made an invoicing module, I compile the program by pressing F9. The EXE program I can run it from my Pc with no problem, but if I copy it to another Pc and run it a lot of error messages appear "is it because I did not give an alias for the database"  please advice me how to solve this problem.
Please advise in detail How to deploy my bde is it by using bdeadmin so please give more detail SOS

Thank you in advance for your help.

hi sivatagiherceg,

you must also deplay the bde and create the alias if you deploy your exe.
(this is not a cause of the compiler)

if you use installshield which ships with delphi, it will take care of the majority of the BDE installation and alias creation and crap you are currently missing by just dropping the executable on another machine... database access with delphi is nearly impossible without the BDE or some other kind of 3rd party database access thing...
