Hello people,

How do i get the values of the constants declared in a dll.
I need to know the values of the flags JOB_RUN_PERIODICALLY, JOB_ADD_CURRENT_DATE and other flags used in the NetScheduleJodAdd / Enum functions.

Thanx for your time

You won't be able to extract it out of a DLL.  You'll need to get it out of some sort of header file.

These will be provided in Delphi units or in C/C++ .h files.

These are converted to values at compile time, so back-engineering them is quite difficult.
The only way you could get them out of a DLL is if they happened to store them in the resource section.  You can get at that with a tool like Borland's Resource Workshop.
