If I build the AddIn with Project Options "Build with runtime packages" unchecked, the AddIn.DLL is very large but regsvr32 registers it ok.
If "Build with runtime packages" IS checked and I use packages adxBuildD7;adxolBuildD7
the AddIn is much smaller but regsvr32 is unable to register it.
I want to keep the AddIn small so uploading updates is faster.
What am I missing? Thanks.

Hi Jeffrey,

If you check the "Build with runtime packages" option, you will need to deploy the following libraries rtl70.bpl, vcl70.bpl, dclOffice2k70.bpl, vcldb70.bpl, dbrtl70.bpl together with your add-in. And naturally, the dxBuildD7.bpl and adxolBuildD7.bpl libraries are needed. Please note, I took the above list from an empty add-in that does not use any controls or third-party libraries.

I would recommend not to check this option because the final installation package will be large anyway, about the same size.

Thanks, by including rtl70.bpl, vcl70.bpl, dclOffice2k70.bpl, vcldb70.bpl, dbrtl70.bpl together with adxBuildD7;adxolBuildD7 the AddIn Registers ok.

Yes, the initial install will be about the same size.
But my AddIn.DLL went from 3,875 KB down to 1,517 KB.
When I need to put a new version of my Addin.DLL in place I only need to upload 1,517 KB to each Computer.

Thanks again.
