Alright so here's the deal, I'm new to using RPG Maker (XP) so I've been creating a little bit of things here and there and I'm starting to get the hang of it. However whenever I try to play the exported game on another computer I get the following error message: "RGSS-RTP Standard not found." The problem is that I've included all the sprites and music and whatnot in the game's files that come with it and also this little thing called 'RGSS102E.dll', and it still doesn't work! One thing that should be mentioned is that I nearly-broke the project by adding these things: I went to database and started exporting all the files into the right folder, but then tiles started disappearing from my workbar, this was fixed by adding these tiles manually into the graphics folder using windows explorer (copy-paste).
I've been fiddling around with the settings for a while now, but this is getting ridiculous. I want to be able to play this thing on computers that don't have this pack installed and I also want friends to be able to play it without the pack installed.
Does anybody know how to fix this? Would be much appreciated.

Import all RTP files you are using from the RTP folder (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterbrain\etc)
Edit the game settings file found in your game folder to set the RTP to "" (nothing)
Find RGSS102e.dll in C:\WINDOWS\system32 and copy it into your game folder
That should be about it, I think.
sorry, didn't read your post:
It sounds like what you're missing is editing the game settings file to remove the rtp. Just set them all to "".

Another easy fix...
Whenever you start a new game, right off move JUST the files you need, as you need them into your project file, then change the settings in the database to point to those files (files in your project are marked with a red icon in the materials window)
That way right off the start you have a game that does not rely on the RTP but rather the files in your project. Need another file? copy it over. Tile sets, characters, sounds, everything do in this means and you'll never have an issue.
I have a project that's already pre set up. It has a blank title/end game, one player character, window skin, and five icons, one animation, one tile set and seven auto tiles to go with it, one transition, and the sound effects that are for system sounds. Database is set to all point to those files, no addeshenal items or characters, roughly database is wipped clean of everything but one or two defaults that point to the files in the project.
Right off then you have a project that is RTP free that you can copy and paste to a new folder to start new projects.
This means is a lot better then including the RTP with the project, cause you'd be bringing over a LOT of files your game may not use, making the file size of your project huge.

if your trying to play the game on a separate computer why not just compress the game folder and include the rtp when u compress it....
