This question is for TWARD.  I had asked about displaying cards using a DLL, cards32.dll from microsoft.  I was wondering where I can find this DLL, as my system directory only has card.dll.

Thanks.

I am not sure where to get it as the code that I passed on to you I found in one of the Visual Basic NewsGroups.  Below are is the same declares but they are for CARDS.DLL.  I believe the one I send you for CARDS32.DLL has both 32bit and 16bit declares if you look at the end of that file.
