QB 4.5 to QBX 7.1 and external libraries

Post by benjiboy » Sat Dec 17, 2005 10:06 am

All,

I have a QB4.54 version of the Nexus_13 external library. If I try to use it in QBX 7.1 it returns a format error. Is there anyway I can convert the library :?:

bestway to do that is if you have the sources and recompile with pds

Or if you don't have the sources, you might be able to find a library decompiler.

Hmm,
guess I'll have to run it under QB4.5 until I understand all the ins and outs of Nexus 13 and then look around for a replacement library so I can move my code to QB7.1...

Thanks anyway.

Yeah, it doesn't matter... to many (not all, many), QB45 > PDS

To me, PDS > QB45
Anyway, try this: it can convert 4.5 to PDS

if you have the .Lib file you can extract the .Obj files to recompile in the PDS using the program Lib.exe, Here you can read how.
but if you only have the .Qlb file you could try a binary to Obj file converter Here.
