I'm trying to run a report exe on a machine that does not have InfoMaker.
I can not connect to the database. What DLL's does the machine need? Any
Help would be great.

You need to install the deployment kit, selecting the appropiate database
driver as well.
It's available as an option on the IM install program.
You can install the deployment kit to the network. As long as it's in the
path of the user running the exe. You will need to install ODBC drivers on
the local PC if you require ODBC for your reports.

I have created an executable on diskette and it can run on any machine.
The only things you need to have in order to run the report exe from
diskette are two files: your_report.exe and im.ini or your_report.ini -
this ini file is created automatically when you create your exe.
It works at least in my case and on the machines when people don't have
Infomaker installed. Try it!

You MUST have the deployment kit installed and it must be in the path.
Amongst other things it contains the appropiate native database driver that
you need to connect to your database. If you use an ODBC driver, you
would also need to have that driver installed as well.
