IBDAC

Deployment

IBDAC applications can be  built and deployed with or without run-time libraries. Using run-time libraries is managed with the "Build with runtime packages" check box in the Project Options dialog box.

Deploying Windows applications built without run-time packages

You do not need to deploy any files with IBDAC-based applications built without run-time packages, provided you are using a registered version of IBDAC.

You can check if your application does not require run-time packages by making sure the "Build with runtime packages" check box is not selected in the Project Options dialog box.

Trial Limitation Warning

If you are evaluating deploying Windows applications with IBDAC Trial Edition, you will need to deploy the following DAC BPL files:

dacXX.bpl always
ibdacXX.bpl always

and their dependencies (required IDE BPL files) with your application, even if it is built without run-time packages:

rtlXX.bpl always
dbrtlXX.bpl always
vcldbXXX.bpl always

Deploying Windows applications built with run-time packages

You can set your application to be built with run-time packages by selecting the "Build with runtime packages" check box in the Project Options dialog box before compiling your application.

In this case, you will also need to deploy the following BPL files with your Windows application:

dacXX.bpl always
ibdacXX.bpl always
dacvclXX.bpl if your application uses the IbDacVcl unit
ibdacvclXX.bpl if your application uses the IbDacVcl unit
crcontrolsXX.bpl if your application uses the CRDBGrid component

If you remove the names of these assemblies from the References list of your project, these files will not be required on the target computer.
