Is there a way to decrease the output .exe file size (Borland Delphi 6)?

    You can reduce the program's size by using the "Build with Packages" option. But this has a major drawback: each computer on which the program runs needs to have the appropriate packages installed. I know that in D5 this is about 2MB(!), but if the program is designed to run on your computer only (or on other computers with D6 installed), it will save a lot of space.
    A second way is to redesign the program to a console application, but that might not be desirable in most cases.
