How do you create standalone executables for fortran90 programs using Plato? I've tried creating the executable using the 'release' option, but whenever I place it onto a computer without Plato I get crashes complaining about missing DLLs. What am I doing wrong here?

You can copy the EXE and salflibc.dll to the other computer, manually or by using a batch file. By the time you start wanting to copy files to specific directories, (including setting them up in the first place), and adding things to the registry, doing it that way gets tedious, and there's always the chance of missing something.

You can use an installer or setup program, which automates the process. I use Jordan Russell Software's free InnoSetup program (Google it). It has the advantage of compressing all your files into one EXE, which unpacks itself when you run it. InnoSetup has the other advantage of being free!

Merry Christmas!
