Executable is not distributable...

Archives Forums/BlitzPlus Bug Reports/Executable is not distributable...

scoop(Posted 2006) [#1]

I have an application that runs fine on my machine, both in the editor and as an executable, but it crashes whenever it's run on any other machine.

All PCs are of a similar spec, and the only userlib (freeimage) is in the exe directory (in \data).

I've had this with other projects. Any ideas?

My exe doesn't need anything other DLLs from the BlitzPlus app directory?

You only need to distribute the exe, the dlls you are using, and any media (sound, gfx etc) you use.

You should put checks into your app/game to make sure all the DLLs and media is in the correct place, and warn the user if it isn't. After that is done, you can start blaming blitz!
