App and a DLL in Delphi 3. Runs great under win95. Under winnt, the app says it can't find the dll, even if the dll is in the same directory. (I'm importing it using the syntax: external 'xxxx.dll').
What's going on ?

Hi,

Please try placing the DLL in System32 directory. If this does not help, we may try dynamicloading with LoadLibrary and understand the cause.

Regards,
Igor

Do you have any trouble with app you did not make?
I'm aking this because I was having trouble with 16 bit apps with NT 4 due to a corrupt ver.dll.

No. Other apps run fine. Even another app I wrote which doesn't link to any of my dll's (the setup)

Remove the ".dll" in your external declarations.  It took me a while to figure this one out as well

I'll grade you good anyway, but the real solution is adding the .DLL extension, but the point is to type external XXXXXXX.DLL - ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.

I'll grade you good, but the real solution is to import the DLL WITH the DLL extension and all capital letters !!! Nice going Borland+Microsoft (NOT)
