DILMerge V5.4.1
Delphi tradition was to generate a single executable but when strong reasons requested separated run time packages.
With .NET things are different: a typical .NET application consists of an executable assembly, a bunch of assemblies in the program directory, and a bunch of assemblies in the GAC.
Now, ok for the GAC, we have been used to system DLLs for a long time, but that DLLs around the executable look so VBish...
Really MS has a assembly linker, ILMerge. But ILMerge is a command line tool and its use is a bit akward, so I made a Delphi oriented GUI for it: DILMerge.
DILMerge gets a RAD Studio or BDS project, extracts and shows a list of assembly references and suggests which merge together. If necessary the list can be adjusted and the merge options tweaked before merging the assemblies and generating a good old single file executable.
Alternatively the list can be manually constructed.
DILMerge V5.x is a .NET 2 application but supports both .NET 2 and 1.1 (last .NET 1.1 version of DILMerge (V4.2) is included too).
