statically linking dll
Date: 05.04.06 19:06 (Wed, 5 Apr 2006 14:06:27 -0400)

Does anyone have any pointers on how can get a windows dll to be
statically linked into a windows plugin that i'm building with cw 9
(latest version). I really don't want users to have to install the
dll with their app if they want to use the plugin.

thanks

Alex

You can't directly. You would have to do what RB does for the plugin DLL's
and embed the DLL as a BLOB and exact it to some user writeable folder and
then use it. The download of that is you would have to weak-link to all of
the DLL functions.
