How can I reduce the size of the DLL's needed for my app to work? Or require less?

1) Recompile them with parts you don't need removed
2) Compress them

I removed the QtGUI include, using QtCore instead. I seemed to have an issue but it's working now. Thanks for the help. Now it's less that 13mb. (before it was around 200mb...).

Debug and non debug. One contains debugging information like function names, parameter names etc... The other doesn't.

Maybe that's one for the FAQ :

never include the DLL's that end with 'd' in your distribution. If you need those, it means you have a debug build and not a release build.

Marc

And what would the question be for that one?

"My DLLs combined are around 200MB, how can I shrink them down in size?"

"Use the release versions, not the debug ones. Debug ones end in 'd'."

been_1990,

Can you please not edit your posts completely in the future?
Now my response looks very out of place.

Thanks.
