Good Morning Milind,

> Installing BED worked...

I will suggest investing in Ken's books. This topic is covered in detail

Requirements for running a exe built in dbase.
1. dBase (But purchasing licence for each computer is costly and of no use)


2. runtime. Runtime is free to download and install on as many computers
as required. Disadvantage of runtime is that it only runs compiled code.

BDE is installed in both the cases (unless you specifically cancel it in
case of runtime)

Copying files is a tedious approach and does not work always.
Installing runtime is the safest.
