are you using any ActiveX component? this component might not be installed in the other system

you may need to register the dll on the workstation

I usually put message boxes in the code every few lines to see where the app is failing.

If there is code in the create event of the main form, this should tell you what line its at.

The app will always start - it has to do something, you need to find out what is wrong.  Make a copy of your app and start by stripping out the likely suspects until you see something on the screen, its trial and error to isolate the problem sometimes.

I have made an install pack using inno setup but this is not determining the dependencies. Any way i find that midas.dll was missing. But now on most computers that it was not working it is working but i have a few of them whis is not allaways working. It might be ok foe some users..... let me find out and i will be back for "accept" answers. 10x a lot

MIDAS fixes in Delphi 7.1
Check the above links fror midas.dll patch

Also you may have to include the dll file which is missing
It seems the midas.dll library does not install automatically for some reason and can download from this site
 get an Error loading MIDAS.dll error when starting PractiCount and the program refuses to work properly after that.
