  • Question on install location

    I've compiled a suf job, with all the files necessary (DLL, OBJ, TLB, etc) in one directory ... named after the project name.

    I noticed after the build, that the files were being placed into the Appdir. Is this of importance? I would actually prefer NOT to overwrite the current dll's, but will it affect the performance ... ie: will the silly thing break in the midst of running?

    any thoughts

    It is generally fine to put DLLs in the same dir as your application as long as they are not COM components. ActiveX/COM DLLs that need to be registered should usually be placed in the %SysDir% because they are shared components and when registered always point to the last location that they were registered from.
