    Re: about third party library files


    Manisha,
    If you could give me a brief description of the application you are converting
    from(i.e. what it does) and the third-party DLLs (i.e. are they COM DLLs
    or regular Windows DLLs), I would be happy to try to help you.

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    Re: about third party library files


    Hi,
    First of all to answer your question about type of dll- Well, I am using
    com dll from Entrust.
    Let me give you brief description of my vb app. The application which I have
    developed using VB and Third Party com dll is a
    command line utility performing cryptographic actions. I have referenced
    those dlls in my vb applications.
    Now I would like to use their C++ Com toolkit and convert the same applications
    in C++.
    I hope I have given you required description to guide me. Please let me know
    if you would like to know more.
    Thanks for replying.
    Manisha

    Re: about third party library files


    Manisha,
    Good! You are not trying to do a GUI application in C++. :-) The conversion
    of this application to C++ should be fairly painless. All you need to do
    is create a "console application" in VC++ and reference the COM DLLs you
    need. A good example of how to access COM DLLs (ADO in this example) from
    a C++ console application is found here:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/ps...k/mdat9s6h.htm

    You can use this example as a guide for accessing COM DLLs from C++.

    I hope this helps you! :-)
