    graphics....linking resource files...

    ok i have the cpp file rc file and header file and im trying to link them together: on DEV C++ i put this all in a project i hit rebuild all it links it makes the .dll file then i goto run and it says:

    host application not found! goto execution menu parameters and that part confuses me i dont get that parameters thing



    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include "resource.h"
    
    const char g_szClassName[] = "myWindowClass";
    
    // Step 4: the Window Procedure
    LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd, UINT msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
    {
        switch(msg)
        {
                           case WM_LBUTTONDOWN:
    // BEGIN NEW CODE
            {
                char szFileName[MAX_PATH];
                HINSTANCE hInstance = GetModuleHandle(NULL);
    
                GetModuleFileName(hInstance, szFileName, MAX_PATH);
                if(MessageBox(hwnd, szFileName, "This program is:", MB_OK | MB_ICONINFORMATION == IDOK));
                MessageBox(hwnd, "TO TELL YOU","I HATE YOU ALL", MB_OK | MB_ICONINFORMATION);
            
            
            }
    //END NEW CODE
            case WM_CLOSE:
                 {
                          bool close;

    That is not a .DLL application. Plus, you can not just "run" a DLL, it is a dynamic link library which you can load at run-time or link in with a project. This allows selective loading of different code instead of considering all possibilities of a situation in the main application, as well as providing a lot of nifty things (resource DLLs, etc.) Just make a new project with that code in it as a "Win32 Application Project" or something of the sort and Run it. Should work fine. Despite the code whoring up on the MessageBox's. Meh. Re-post any problems you experience because I could not bring my weathered eyes to read that crazy .........

    It will compile fine. I don't think there is anything prohibited from compiling that as a DLL. But you are not reading what I am saying, as I am avoiding reading what you are saying as it is a foreign language that I am not all that fluent in. But again, I said in my post, that DLL's are not runnable applications. They contain executable code but do not simply run, and need a host file to load the code into it's process space and use it. But that is besides the scope of this thread.

    What you need to do!

    1) Create a new project was a "Win32 Application".
    2) Add the same files you psoted to the project
    3) Compile and run it if no errors occur.
    Conditional 4) Learn english and report back.

    Try reading what I said in my earlier post. I explained these things. You were pretty rude and ignorant in not attempting to understand the help I tried to give you.
