How to include delphi's bpl's in application.

I'm about to release my first ever Delphi application (Delphi6). I've just now discovered it needs all these .bpl files to execute which reside in the system32 folder. (Eg: rtl60.bpl, vcl60.bpl). I would prefer to compile the required contents of these into the executable or some other file, rather than lumping around all the other stuff in those files that is not needed. I was always under the assumption that Delphi would do this automatically, just like with my own units.

 - Thanks

>Eg: rtl60.bpl, vcl60.bpl

these are only for the IDE itself,
your executebles applications don't need this files,
as long as you do not select use runtimepackages in the project-options

Project / Options / Packages / Runtime Packages

make sure the box is UNCHECKED. If not - uncheck it. And Project / Build to rebuild you application. After that you won't need the bpl's...

Kretzschmar was first by 9 minutes, but Ivanov G was easier to understand. Only the Olymics could have seen a closer contest. I'm going to split the points.
