Directories and Dlls...
Posted on 1999-01-29
I have an application which has A.EXE and B.DLL in C:\MyApp\ directory. In subdirectory C:\MyApp\Sub1\ I have C.DLL and D.DLL. When A.EXE is executed, it is loaded with B.DLL as well because A.EXE is statically linked with B.DLL.
When user click a button in A.EXE, A.EXE will dynamically call C.DLL in C:\MyApp\Sub1\. C.DLL will change the current directory to C:\MyApp\Sub2\, a new directory, using ChDir(), after that, C.DLL will dynamically call D.DLL. D.DLL is statically linked with B.DLL as well which is located in C:\MyApp\.
D.DLL cannot be loaded and gives me an error saying 'A required .DLL file, B.DLL, was not found.'.
A.EXE uses CreateProcess() to call C.DLL and B.DLL is already in the memory, why can't D.DLL be loaded? Any solution to this?
I've tried this, before C.DLL calls D.DLL, it changes the directory back to C:\MyApp\, then D.DLL can be loaded.
But what I don't understand is that, how do I make D.DLL understand that B.DLL has already in the memory?
Phew...a long one...
