ow to avoid recompiling a client app when a referenced component (dll,ocx, ..) has changed

Hello experts.

Assuming that i have:

1. a Standard-exe which acts as client
2. an ActiveX-dll which acts as server for 1.

My problem:

If i compile 2. i have to recompile 1. too although i havent made any changes in the interface of 2.

How can i achieve that i haven't to release all client components when i have made changes in the server component without changig the interface.

regards

V.K.

In the Project properties of your ActiveX dll, make sure that Binary compatibility is turned on and that it points to your existing version of the DLL (box right below the option).  This will allow you to recompile the DLL without having to recompile the apps that use it.  The only time this will not work is if you change how the DLL is accessed (it's interface).
