Stand alone 32 bit program

Stand alone 32 bit program

Stand alone 32 bit program

I wrote a 32 bit program that works perfectly when run from debug.  It also runs perfectly when run from Windows 98 while the borland compiler is in memory.  As soon as I remove the compiler, however, dialog boxes fail to appear properly.

RE: Stand alone 32 bit program

OK.  After another day's work ... and telling anyone who came near me how much I hate windows, I think I've narrowed down the problem.

Only those dialog boxes in which I've used Borland Windows Custom Controls fail to work when the compiler (4.51) isn't in memory.  Any dialog box that uses only standard windows controls works properly all the time.

I tried checking the BWCC library box when I create the  ide project file but it has no effect.  Any ideas how I can include these custom controls and keep the program working when the compiler isn't in memory?


RE: Stand alone 32 bit program

try this: i dont know if itll work with your program, but it's worth a try.

goto options->Linker...UN-click Use dynamic RTL.
then goto options->Packages...UN-Click build with runtime packages.

thats about all i know to do for you, sorry.
