runtime dll's
« on: October 31, 2007, 01:39:49 PM »
When it comes to lisp or visual lisp I’m very proficient but with C++ I’m still a newbee and don’t understand a lot, so forgive me for asking stupid questions but here goes.

I compile my lisp to a vlx and use a HASP key for protection. At first I had to load a HASP.arx file supplied by the security company to make calls to. The problem was that every time AutoCAD recompiled a new version I had to wait for the new hasp.arx to be issued. Now they have issued a dll file and a tlb file that I use the function ( vlax-import-type-library) to import the methods, properties and constants with. So no more loading arx files and it works with all versions of AutoCAD.

The question is: Can the same thing be done with the runtime files for openDCL?

The OpenDCL runtime uses the ObjectARX API, which is version specific. Therefore, it is not possible to make one DLL that works in all supported versions of AutoCAD.
