Compile Options?

Is there any way I can compile a simple program to an EXE and not have it be dependant on external DLL's? I don't want an install I want to be able to write really simple programs that will execute on a windows PC without any external bits.

RE: Compile Options?

It depends on how simple. And, on what version of Windows. You might be able to do it with Win 3.1, however, anything else....

You could include the dlls that you need in the exe. That is always interesting.

RE: Compile Options?

I am writing simple programs to make file and reg changes under NT 4. Things to do with software deployment to 1600 NT 4 workstations. How can I include the dlls in the exe?
