[ANN] Creating Excel-callable DLLs with GCC - fails! -works with 1999-01-15 DLL !
Wed Mar 24 09:42:00 GMT 1999
Did as you requested. Downloaded 1999-01-15 dll. Renamed all the copies of
the old cygwin1.dll to cygwin1.dll.old (had 3 on my system). Replaced them
with the newly downloaded dll. Removed old cdll.dll from system. Compiled
cdll.dll WITH the "-s" flag using "$ make". Moved the cdll.dll to
c:\windows\system\. Ran the excel example (works). Checked to make sure I
was not recompiling the old MingW dll by mistake.
Incidentally, I was not sure if the binaries created under Win95 and under
NT are identical, which is why I offered to send copies.
