Quick Question

4 posts in this topic

This is probably a rather stupid question, and I believe the answer is yes, but wanted to get confirmation.

I completed an application utilizing the autoitx dll in VB.net. My question is simply this, must the host user have AutoIt installed o n their system for successful execution of the program or is there a way to embed the dll in my program to alleviate the need for an install of AutoIt?

Thanks!

They will require AutoItx.dll on their PC to allow your program to run.

:)

Does it suffice to copy the .dll to the appropriate directory and register it myself? Or is this poor practice. I had great success in utilizing AutoIt's functionality but I'm admittedly low on knowledge when it comes to DLL usage.

You only need to register the dll if you use it as ActiveX. If you are calling flat dll functions, no registration is needed.

The dll works alone. You don't need the full installation.
