    The PDW will look for your application dependencies, whether it will add your MDB file, I'm not sure.

    The easiest way would be to build your setup, then have a look in the setup.lst file as to whether your MDB has been added.

    This link gives full details on PDW and how to use.

    Sorry can't be of more help as I never really used PDW.

    Thanks again, I'll give that a go.

    Appreciate your assistance.

    Thanks for the pointers.

    regarding your comment about loading the settings manually, are you suggesting I should load them in the VB app and pass them through to the DLL or load them in the DLL directly (the VB app doesn't use them as such)?

    again, apologies if these are dumb questions.
  4. In Topic: Query about Deploying Class Library Wrapper for WebService

    Sorry for raising this again so long after the original post.

    The renaming of the config file to app.exe.config, works a treat when the VB6 app is compiled.

    The issue I now have, is I want to be able to debug the VB6 app whilst calling the DLL, but for whatever reason, it can create the object reference, but any calls seem to fail with no explanation (I can only assume the DLL can't see the config file).

    I've registered the DLL using both GacUtil and Regasm and even placed a copy of the config file in the GAC folder of the DLL, but still no joy.

    Can anyone explain what I could be missing here? Thanks.

    [EDIT] by creating a copy of the config file as app.vbp.config, it now seems to be able to call the DLL functions, but the DLL itself doesn't seem to be able to see the config details as it's not managing to call the webservice.
  5. In Topic: adding negative numbers

    The variable sngVar1 is just a name, it is no different than Var1, I just prefixed the datatype (single).

    One thing worth thinking about is the variable declaration, as far as I remmeber, you need to tell VB6 what each variable type is, so your code of
    Dim var1, var2, var3 as single

    only var3 is of type single, the rest are of type variant.
