Hi,

I have used Setupbuilder from Lindersoft for a long time for my windows installers. It's easy to use and works great.

But I need to program it "what to do" and there is precious little info I have found on installing procedures.

Very basic... do the DLLs in the libs folder have to be "registered" in windows???
Or does our app load and register them automagically? In which case we just have to install the folder in same level as the exe file under our company folder under Program Files...

Are there any other files outside the Libs folder and the compiled EXE that need to be installed???

Any other advice appreciated.

-T

"Normal" dll's do not need to be registered. Registration is required for COM-type dll's. Just put the libs folder next to the exe.

The dlls produced by REALStudio when you create a Windows application don't need any special handling. Just make sure they're in the same directory as the EXE file (or in a subdirectory called "Libs".) The application will locate and load them automatically. For all other dlls, Windows' will search a standard series of directories for the named dll file (unless you're calling external libraries via the Declare statement you don't need to worry about this.)
