Creating PowerBuilder executable

Question:
I want to create an independent PowerBuilder executable. Which DLLs should I include, and how do I package them with my application so that it runs on a computer without any PowerBuilder installation?

Platform: Win95 with PB 5.0

Answer:
The answer to this question depends on the type of executable you aredeploying. There is a minimum set of PB DLLs required for astand-alone no-database or Distributed PowerBuilder executable.

PBRTE050.DLL PB Runtime Engine
PBRTF050.DLL PB Runtime Functions
PBSHR050.DLL Storage Manager, Print, Misc. Functions

For a 16-bit application they are as follows:

PBBGR050.DLL Business Graph Engine
PBDWE050.DLL Data Window Engine
PBOUI050.DLL OLE 2 User Interface
