Ressource DLLs not generated

Hi,

I'm trying to integrate two languages into my app (german and english).
So I used the Delphi 7 ressource dll expert and added those two languages.

After translating some of the strings I wanted to test the english version.
I recompiled, updated the ressource dll and activated english but it doesn't work.
My app is still in german.

I've noted that the *.DEU and *.ENU files are missing. AFAIK they are the
compiled ressource dlls but it seems as if they are not generated.
Whenever I try to update the ressource dlls, Delphi seems to be working on
them and after that the translation manager is displayed.
When closing it, nothing happens and the *.DEU and *.ENU files are
not generated.

What am I missing here? Do I have to translate the whole app before
anything is generated?

thx
Wyverex

Maybe you should do a "Build all" instead of just a "Build"?

*lol*

that did it... apparently the ressource projects have not been compiled automatically.
it could have taken me a long time to find that ;-)

Just a very wild guess. :-)
