Since when is the PLATFORMTARGETS resource included in non-package binaries?

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/20

A while ago, I discovered that most (if not all) Delphi compiled Windows binaries contain the PLATFORMTARGETS resource.

This is a resource introduced in Delphi XE2 meant to be included in package binaries only.

The documentation back then clearly indicates this:

Relatively recent documentation too: [WayBack] 64-bit Windows Application Development – RAD Studio: Making Your Components Available at Design Time and Run Time

Still all my Delphi compiled binaries contain the PLATFORMTARGETS resource.

When did the compiler behaviour change to include PLATFORMTARGETS in ALL binaries?
