1. The WINDEV framework
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
The WINDEV framework is the set of libraries (.DLL files) required to run a WINDEV application.
When creating the executable, you can choose to use:
  • the framework beside the executable,
  • the framework included in the executable,
  • the common WINDEV framework.
Using a framework beside the executable
When using a framework beside the executable, the libraries are installed in the directory of each application. Therefore, each WINDEV application is using its own version of libraries. You have the ability to rename the libraries when using a framework beside the executable.
Benefits of framework beside the executable:
  • Each application can exploit a different version of framework DLLs.
  • The framework of a given application can be updated without impacting the other applications.
  • The framework can be renamed.
Using the framework included in the executable
When using the framework included in the executable, the executable is stand-alone. The framework DLLs are not extracted when running the executable.
Benefits of framework included in the executable:
  • Stand-alone executable.
  • No extraction of framework DLLs.
Note : Depending on the features used by the application, it may not be possible to use the framework included in the executable.
Using the common WINDEV framework
When using the common framework, the libraries are installed in a common directory. These libraries are shared by all the WINDEV applications installed on the same computer.
Benefits of the common framework:
  • The disk space used by the framework (about 30 MB) is shared by all the applications.
  • The framework is updated once only for all the applications installed.
  • The common framework can be renamed.
Note : When using the common framework, you have the ability to replace one or more DLLs (if a specific version is required for example).
