Hi Guys

Ive been working on a project and it compiles and runs succesfully (in Borland BUilder 5.0). But when I try to run the excecutable outside the programming environment it gives me the following error:

"This application has failed to start because BCBSMP50.BPL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I might have messed around with the project options, but Ive done that before and the exes still used to execute.
Any help please.

*.BPL file extension usually stands for delphi libraries. I Don't use bc++, but guess that it is a kind of dynamic library which is linked with your program.

BCBSMP50.BPL contains "Borland C++ Sample Components" (Do you Google ?), and is delivered as part of Borland c++ libraries.

Does your code rely on functions or classes that are Borland specific ?
If no, have you tried to change your project's makefile in order to avoid the linking of this library ?

What happens if you copy this file into your program's repertory ?
