How to create an executable file using CodeGear C++ Builder?

Posted on 2009-04-17

I have created an application using CodeGear C++ Builder using Project->Build. The exe file that is created is run with no problems on the pc where C++ is installed. When I try to run it from a different pc , an error pops up rtl120.bpl was not found. What am I missing?

    Hi Chrysaor,

    In the project options dialog check the 'Linker' tab.  Find the checkbox for building with runtime packages and toggle it.

    Now recompile your application.  You should see a dramatic increase in the size of the executable.

    Good Luck,

    rtl120 is BCB2009...
    There are 2 options for Build, debug AND release...
    Check the options in both configurations...
    Also check out for "Dynamic RTL" in both configurations(Uncheck)...
    That is what causing that...

    Kdo : " In the project options dialog check the 'Linker' tab.  Find the checkbox for building with runtime packages and toggle it." I did not find such checkbox..
    gtokas: I've uncheck Dynamic RTL, checked everything else, doesn't work..

    I've tried it on my laptop now, says vcl100.bpl was not found..

    Image sample 1: check out the cursor's position and there right click and select edit...
    Image Sample2: The packages page as Kdo suggested...
    Image Sample 3. The linker page...

    I think now you understand..:-)
