@Alexander vnbsp;der Linden No DLL hell as Delphi compiles to one (1) native .exe.
RS / Xojo doesn't have the DLL Hell issue either. It is not in a single EXE, which would be nice, but the DLLs it uses are packaged with app folders, so you are not sharing DLLs with other vendors. That is really the issue with DLL hell, not that have to lug around DLLs in your installer, but rather some other vendor could swap out a shared DLL with some other version that may cause you problems.
I looked at Delphi a few years ago when I decided on RS and if the Mac support was better, I might have went with them, their Windows stuff seemed top notch. But the Mac version seemed pretty cludgy and thrown together. I do sometimes get the feeling that WIndows is a second banana with Xojo, but because I was trying to move into the Mac market, seemed like the better choice.
