What Files Are Needed For Stand Alone .EXE
« on: August 19, 2011, 06:15:00 AM »
Hello,

Just curious which files exactly are needed for stand alone .exe to allow application to run after being complied.

I see:

Data
Resources
Default_CR
Do not delete
myapplication.prj
myapplication_w.exe
stand.app
status.bin
stderr

Which files can I delete safely while allowing the application to still work?

Also I know I need "myapplication_w.exe" if I change this to just "myapplication.exe" will it causes any issues?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry for responding so very late - i simply failed to see your post.

When distributing your app you need the following in your project folder -- the .exe, stand.app, any local files your program might refer to, plus the data folder.

Yes you can rename the .exe and delete both the ***.prj file, resource folders and anything else.
I am sorry but I do not have time to answer questions by PM or email.
If you post your questions in this forum then it might help others.
