Calling a function from Delphi 2009 to a C++ Dll
Posted on 2008-11-04
So, I have to use a previously compiled DLL made in C++.
There's a function defined as :
extern "C" SHORT DLLExport WINAPI OpenThisFile(PBYTE cpFileName)
I used to have the next code in Delphi 5,6,7,2005,006 and 2007 which used to work:
OpenThisFile: function(cpFileName: PChar); SmallInt stdcall
But now, in Delphi 2009 that seems broken, it seems from the error messages I'm getting that the C++ function just reads the first character of the filename I'm passing.
How do I do that now in Delphi 2009? (and preferable be backward compatible with Delphi 2007 and older)
