Question Kylix program will not run outside Kylix

I wrote a simple "Hello, World" with Kylix and there as NO Error after compilation and was able to generate the executable.

However; when i try to run the said "Hello, World" program it can not and reports that It can not load the shared file "" and the said file or folder does not exist.

I had already set the Environmental variables LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include my Target and where all the shared objects are pointing and had also included in the /etc/ file my Target folder and where my Kylix 3.0's bin and lib folders are located.

Yet, I still get the Error and the simple Kylix 3.0 "Hello, World" program still does not run. I was log-in as root and still nothing happens and still the same Error was reported. I'd check the content of the /etc/ and my Target folder and the Kylix bin and lib folder are also indicated as well.

Pls. advise what to do next. Thank You, very, very much....

Cheers !

Please read Kylix Help. A solution is described there: you have to run
source /usr/local/kylix3/bin/kylixpath
before you start a kylix program for the first time. Note that after reboot you must run it again.
And IMHO, Kylix is a piece of crap. It's nothing more than a wrapper for an old BSD licensed version of Winelib and Qt 2.0, and it doesn't run without Borland's shared libs in your path!

Kylix is a verry nice tool. If you manage to get it working on the server then everyting will be just fine. A CGI application developped in Kylix and compiled is much more secure than one developped in PHP, Perl or any scripting language. If you do not want to get tied up to Borland (which is a sinking shipp in my oppinion and I assume full resopnsability for what I said) then you might want to try Lazrus which is a free open source version of Kylix that runs on windows and linux.
You might want to try
