Installing & Deploying

 

This chapter doesn't discuss the ODBC installation; this has to be done by an external setup program in the case of system without ODBC support - all versions of Windows 95.

To learn to how to add/remove license during installation process, see the Using Licenses chapter.

Sequel implementation resides in the sequel.dll file, which must be deployed with your application. As Sequel is the COM server, it must be registered via regsvr32.exe or any similar tool. The recommended location where to place sequel.dll is %Common Files%\XDTK Shared\Sequel directory.

Also the SequelShared routine returns the recommended location. The SequelInstall.dll library is exporting it.

function SequelShared:PANSIChar; stdcall;
char* stdcall SequelShared(); 

If sequel.dll file is already registered elsewhere than %Common Files%\XDTK Shared\Sequel, this routine will return the current location.

 

NSIS Installer

This library also exports routine named NSISSequelShared. It sets $OUTDIR to SequelShared.
