Programs Won't Run on Another Computer

For some reason, new programs that I write work fine on my computer, but not on another computer. I am currently developing programs on a Windows 10 computer with C++ Builder 2010. I build the projects with "Build with runtime packages" unchecked and "Dynamic RTL" set to False.

I have deployed many programs to other computers without problems, so I don't know why the problems have started arising.

I made a test case from a new VCL application with NO programming by me and compiled it with "Build with runtime packages" unchecked and "Dynamic RTL" set to False and tried it on a Windows 7 computer and it did not run. I only get the little Windows loading circle and the program never runs. I launch the 'Task Manager' to kill the program.

I am not sure, but the problems may have started arising when I migrated to Windows 10.

Thank you for your help.

It turns out Avast antivirus protection was the problem. Apparently, from what I have read about Avast, the program blocks programs that haven't been widely used. I have Avast on my computer where I write the programs, and the programs are not blocked on my computer. However,Avast does run the program in the Sandbox to insure it is OK. Now I have to show users how to make an exception in Avast to allow the programs to run.

Hi Earl,
I have the same issue with a very simple DB Windows program. I set up all the options correctly, included of the .dll files I thought I needed from the Project Information dialog box. But I cold never get the program to run on other pc's. The only way I got it done was to use InstallAware then use it's Scan function which gathered all the necessary files that were needed. My only issue with this is, one, InstallAware is very expensive, and, two, it's pulling tons of .dll files that I don't know for sure are absolutely needed.
