Error:File not found(2)

O.K. I have a delphi program which I can build up in Delphi 1 under Win95 and Win311. It only uses standard Delphi 1 controls and dialogs etc. I use two external 16bit DLL's both are present at run and build time. It runs fine under Win95 but under 3.11 it crashes complaining about not being able to find a file.

I can build and run it from Win95 fine.

I can build (but not run) it from 3.11 and then run the EXE from 95 and it works fine????

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I ran into this as well.  Believe it or not, the doc is wrong :)  Under Wn95, you can specitfy the full name of a dll (like mylib.dll) when you specify the external.  When you run the same program under Win31, it wont find it.  You can get it to work by just using the dll file name without the .dll suffix.
Win31 seems to want to add its own suffix.  Then the regular path stuff applies to the location of the dll.

Hope this helps.

Hi!
Maybe try to copy these DLLs into windows system directory or in directory which is specified in path.

Hi,

Firstly thanks for answering, but I have already tried this.
It is as though it is looking for some other DLL's that I haven't
realised that it needs.

Any other help would be appreciated.

Many thanks to all who helped.
