MIDAS & DLLS...

I have created a dll with a form inside of it.  Onclick of one of the buttons. I want to hit the DB using MIDAS controls.  I know I have set the server up correctly, because i have tried to hit it on a normal form (not in a dll) and it works fine.  In my dll, I drop a DCOMConnection, ClientDataSet, and DataSet on my form.  I hooked my DCOMConnection to the server, the Client Dataset to the DCOMConnection and the DataSet to the ClientDataSet.  I can Connect and Disconnect the DCOMConnection all day while I am in desgin mode.  Once in run mode, I will call the dll and everything is fine, but as soon as I do anything that deals with connecting to the server, I get a "CoInitialize Has Not Been Called".  What am I doing wrong?

Also, I first had these components on a datamodule inside of the dll and when I tried to access the db, I got a FFFFFFFFF error.  My datamodule is in front of the form in the creation order (atleast it is first in the uses clause in the project source).  Why would I get this error?

Any help appreciated...

Call CoInitialize in the DPR project unit - this will stop the error about coinitialize not being called.

The other error you mention sounds like an access violation. Check that the data module created (ie: There is a call to create the DataModule in your dll main unit.

Cheers,

Raymond.
