Hi there,

I've just finished writing an OLE Server that is referenced by several other modules of an application.  At the moment if I modify the OLE Server I have to recompile all of the other modules that reference it; even if the changes made will have no effect on these modules.  Is there any way of stopping this need to recompile all modules every time the OLE Server changes??  I think it may have something to do with the version compatability settings but i'm not 100% sure of this.

Thanks

Pete

You must compile and make the OLE server with the option
"Binary compatibility" checked. With this option is no need to relink the referencies of your client project.

You only can use this option if you do not have removed methods and functions from prior versions, you can't also change the datatype of the arguments of a function.

By other words, you can do anything, except change prior interface.
