Redistributing Delphi for NET Files

When building applications that use the VCL .NET framework, the way you build the application determines what files you need to distribute with it. If you build the application by compiling VCL for .NET units directly into the program executable file, the application will have external dependencies only on the .NET Framework.

However, if you build the application by compiling the application to have external references to VCL for .NET assemblies, the application will have external dependencies on the .NET Framework, the

Borland.Delphi.dll, and whatever Delphi 8 for .NET packages you have added to the project references, for example, Borland.VclRtl.dll or Borland.Vcl.dll.

Some of the files that are associated with Delphi 8 for .NET applications are subject to redistribution limitations or cannot be redistributed at all. Refer to the following documents for the legal stipulations regarding the redistribution of these files.

File Description

  1. txt Contains deployment considerations for each edition of Delphi 8 for .NET. License.txt Addresses legal rights and obligations concerning Delphi 8 for .NET.
  2. txtContains last minute information about Delphi 8 for .NET, possibly including information that could affect the redistribution rights for Delphi 8 for .NET files.

These files are located, by default, at C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\2.0.
