Compiled Program won't Run

I'm a Delphi rookie but an experienced programmer in Turbo Pascal. I'm trying to use DBF tables, with good results. But when I copy my compiled programs to a diskette and install it on another computer, it simply doesn't work.

Do I need to copy the DataBase Desktop also, in order to get my program to work?

Does Borland authorize such a procedure? Thanks and good luck for all of you!!

You don't need the Database Desktop, but you do need the BDE whenever you distribute local database applications. If you have a Developer level or higher version of Delphi, you can use the InstallShield Express program that comes on the CD to include the BDE with your product. If not, you'll have to look under the distribution directory on the CD (sorry, I forgot the exact name) and copy the BDE DiskX directories to separate floppies.
