smaller

I’ve made a small program (30 lines off code) and I want to distribute this program to a number of people.
I used the package and deployment wizard which comes with the enterprise edition
But that program transforms my code to a mastodon of 10 MB. I know this is because it includes a number of  dll’s, but isn’t there a way to create a smaller package (the executable is only 36K).

What does your 30 lines uses? Are you using ADO (which is 6.5 meg)?

The first thing to do is to go to Project->Components and to Project->References to unselect unused controls and references.

The program reads an ascii file
and puts the data in an access database.

You can make 2 different kinds of distributions.
One for people who already have the needed runtime DLL's. So this distribution will be very small.
Then you can make a second distribution for people who don't have those runtime DLL's.

Hi,

check the files which the PDWizard includes against Microsoft DLL Help Database http://support.microsoft.com/servicedesks/fileversion/dllinfo

Use DAO instead of ADO. DAO takes much less spaces!
