How do I get rid of the debug information in an EXE

In Delphi 2009 I enabled all the debugging features including "Include remote debug info" which made my .EXE jump from around 8MB to over 20MB.  After debugging I set it all back to normal but the .EXE when I build it is still over 20MB.  No idea what I am doing wrong here.

Here are my settings:

After changing something, and if you feel its a final configuration?, check the Default CheckBOX; Quit Delphi; then Open it again, try to compile your new project.

you need to build (= full compile) your project after changing options like compiler settings

there is no check for changes in options, so you don't get a different exe when compiling as normal

I tried everything here to no avail.  Then on a whim I clicked on "Configuration manager" and I saw that the active setting was still debug.  I made release the active setting and re-built and it finally worked!
