Getting the right files for a build
Posted on 2002-04-01
I have an application developed on a Win95 machine and deployed to a variety of Win95, Win98 and NT machines. Our group is moving to an XP OS and moved my code to the XP machine. Now when I do a build, the PDW takes files from Windows/System for Oleaut32, olepro32 and others but these files are not backward compatible to the older OS we are deployed to.
A couple of questions:
1.) How can I change my build (using PDW) to take the correct dlls. I know I can store them in a separate directory but I can't point to that directory using PDW. Is there a file I can modify (obviously this information is stored somewhere) to point to the 'build' directory for PDW?
2.) Back in the days of VB3 we used to install all of the dlls into a directory that we controlled, a subdirectory under the application. We would not install the dll's into the system directory. Is this a possibility to help avoid problems with versions etc?
