I`ve got an exe (22Kb) written with format PE GUI 4.0 directive. Then I did the same with format MS COFF, linked with GoLink... size of output didn`t chage.

I wish to use RAGrid.dll, and I want to build my exe with DLL functions included in code, i.e. my exe should run properly without DLL.
What sohuld I do to complete my task?

veach1,

You can use the radasm\grid\lib\ragrid.lib file and not have to use ragrid.dll

Linking with LIB files will make my program DLL independent?

for some LIBs yes, for some LIBs no. Some LIBs are only references to DLLs, it's workaround in HLLs whose syntax cannot directly import from DLL.

veach1,

The ragrid.lib has the same functionality as the .dll

The only drawback is that linking the .lib file with your code will increase the size of your executable.
