Hi,
I build my project with Borland C++ Builder 5.

How to costumize & rename VCL50.BPL?

For example:
My Project contains only exe & XXX.BPL (renamed VCL50.bpl).

Thanks!

Hello there.
I don't think that there is a way to rename VCL50.BPL...
But maybe I'm wrong...
Anyway did you try to compile the project without the need of the bpl??
I mean at the options on the linker page and at the packages page.
regards

Hi gtokas,
I think, You said that compile your project like Delphi IDE but I want to use renamed VCLXX.BPL. Why? I do not like Fat EXE Files :).
Thanks for interesting...

Sorry, bad grammar!

Thanks again!

I understand... I have the same problem myself... A form only is 110K at bcb5 and 150K at 6...
The only problem is that I didn't find the way to do it and myself many years now(since 1995 and Version1)...
To say the truth I didn't search at borland's community yet....:-)

Try the following:
Rename VCL50.BPL to XXXXX.XXX with limitation on 5chars for name and 3 for extension.
With a hex editor open the exe of your file and replace ALL instances of VCL50.BPL to the name you allready renamed.
WARNING...
Your test MUST BE made in a machine WITHOUT BCB INSTALLED because otherway VCL50 will be allready presend on your system directory...

Inform me if it works...
In my Machine the instances of vcl50.bpl are starting at 10100Hex.
