I want to create a dll using Delphi 7 that can convert a BMP to a PNG without the use of any VCL components.  Any ideas?

    Accepted Solution

    download PNGImage Library for delphi. Its opensource. If you are simply trying to create a dll that does nothing but convert bmp to PNG etc then you may well violate licensing terms on many image libraries.
