I just started using C++ Builder and I made my first application. When I run it on my PC it runs OK. When I run it on other computers I get the message "The applaication has failed to start because vcl60.bpl was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem". I suppose that I must create a setup application that will install my application together with the needed files. How can I do that and how can I know which are the needed files? Is this the case with Visual C++ .Net or Windows already have those visual component libraries installed?
Thank you very much

Easiest way...

Project/Options:
Compiler tab: Click 'Release'

Packages tab:
Un-check 'Bulid with runtime packages'

Linker tab:
Uncheck the first 3 items under 'Linking'

Then rebuild all, and the exe should be redistributable and self-supporting.

What if I want to make an installer and I want to include packages? How is it done? A normal program not just a single file.
Thank you

There's a file called something like Deploy.txt in the borland installed directory which tells you what you need...

If you've the pro. version, you get a copy of InstallShield light with it, don't you?
