DLL Directory

DLL Directory

Postby Daniel on Sun Jul 20, 2003 9:25 am

Good day,

In the documentation of aspEasyZip, there is a section mentioning that we can use a different directory for the additional libraries. It reads as follow :

<i>It could happen that you cannot use the system32 directory from windows to put the additional libraries, (zipdll.dll and unzdll.dll). With this property you can set a special directory out of the system directory, or actual path, and the component will search and run it from there.
This is very important if you place the component on an ISP that doesn"t want to use external DLL on the Windows / System directory.

What I don"t get, is that if the ISP doesn"t allow to install the so called "additional libraries" on their system, how can we expect them to install the dll composing the base object itself (easyzip.dll) ? Am I missing something ?

There are some providers that doesn't allow you to install additional dll that are not from the COM+. The easyzip.dll is a legal COM+ object that can be configured with privileges and additional properties. But the zipdll.dll and unzdll.dll are standard dll that can be suspicious for the provider to attack their web site <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>
This was very common on the beginning when we started to develop the library, they didn't known us and there were confident to run external DLLs. Those days we don't have this problem. This has been maintained for compatibility.
