: help. I want to compile my Delphi project and I want to include my database, etc etc. The problem is when I compile it to .exe, copy it to my friend's computer, it cannot be run. it said, "failed to initiliase BDE". How to cover this prob? thanks. anyway, any answer either on this site or to my e-mail directly is helpful. thanks once again.

You have to install the Delphi *BDE* on the other computer (Borland Database Engine).

With Delphi applications, everything is included in the .exe file, *except* if your application uses database components. In that case, the computer that executes the application also needs the "BDE".
