Helper applications are separate programs without which your application would be partially or completely unable to function. Helper applications may be those supplied with the operating system, by Embarcadero, or by third-party products. An example of a helper application is the InterBase utility program Server Manager, which administers InterBase databases, users, and security.
If an application depends on a helper program, be sure to deploy it with your application, where possible. Distribution of helper programs may be governed by redistribution license agreements. Consult the helper program documentation for specific information.
