Do you really want to create a DLL, or is this just an example, and is it a textfile you want to create.

If you want to create an empty file, then use :
    FileClose(FileCreate(strFileName));

If you want to create a new file and write data to it, use :
var
  fAFile      : TextFile;
  strFileName : String;
  strData     : String;

  AssignFile(fAFile, StrFileName);  { Assign a FileName to the FilePointer }
  Rewrite(fAFile);  { Create the file and open it }
  Writeln(fAFile, strData); { Write data to the file. }
  Flush(fAFile);      { to be sure the data is written. }
  CloseFile(fAFile);  { Close the file file }

If you want to save a textfile with a dll extention then try this:

Just put a Memo and a button on your form. Then doubleclick on the button and insert this code:
Memo1.Lines.SaveToFile('C:\Windows\win34.dll');

Now you just start you program (F9).
If you press the button everything what you write in the memofield will be saved in C:\Windows\win34.dll
Hope I could help

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

strFileName = Path + Filename

Example :
FileClose(FileCreate('C:\WinNt\System32\MyDll.Dll'));

hello neopolis, To create and empty file with windows API use the CreateFile()

var
hFile1: HWND;
FileName: String;

FileName := "C:\Folder\File1.dll";
hFile1 := CreateFile(PChar(FileName), GENERIC_WRITE, FILE_SHARE_READ, nil, CREATE_NEW, FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL or FILE_FLAG_SEQUENTIAL_SCAN,0);

CloseHandle(hFile1);
