Umm, I would say, yes?

After you build an executable, run   depends  on the .exe.  It'll list the 
dependencies and give you a good clue as to what you need to bundle to make 
one click installers for the end users.  Beware the licensing of course, but 
with Windows, you might find that the 'do not redistribute' libraries needed 
by an OpenCOBOL executable are already on the customer's machine. Not always, 
but maybe.
