Windows 7 32 bit CDFs

Postby Dick Frost » Mon Aug 12, 2013 7:23 pm

Does anyone use CDFs on a Windows 7 32 bit ntvdm machine ? Mine break ntvdm, they have worked right along up to this point ...

They still work fine using XP mode ....

Thanks, Dick Frost

Depends on who wrote the CDF, and which compilers they used... I don't have any problems...

Thanks for the response Fred,. I wrote them a long, long time ago ... Microsoft C 6.0 I think.

I mostly was just finding out if CDFs work OK for others (on 32bit Win 7), and since they do, I will explore it more.

Thanks, Dick

Fred, or anyone,

I finally found some time to look at this again, and after reading some in the manual, I suspect my problem may be because I didn't keep up with changes, a long time ago.

In the change from 4.53, my CDFs seemed to work fine, so I didn't even look at them.

Reading now, I see 16M needs a GLUV linking utility, which I don't have. (I don't know why they ever worked)

If this is my problem, is GLUV available anyplace ? (I have searched, unsuccessfully). Or, do I not need to write "16M CDFs" ?

Also, I think I have seen articles that discuss how to write "proper" CDFs, but I can't find anything now. Does something like this exist ?

Thanks, Dick

Can't help you... half the folks that actually wrote CDFs are prolly dead now... :D

Tell us what CDF functionality you're looking for... It'll probably be more productive looking for something that already exists...

The only two that we use much of currently are:

1. stuff an F8 into keyboard buffer, used in a field derivation on subforms, so each subform record gets saved automatically when you enter past it.

2. an extended version of jointext, that takes up to five fields to concatenate together. this one could easily be programmed around, just would take some time.

Thanks, Dick

And, I do have "handtools" and could do the F8 that way ... I think I was fighting memory constraints (it was a long time ago), and I just wrote my own in order not to have to use the larger handtools libraries.

I thought Handtools also had a Concat function too... Jerry Netherton's Jada has a Join3, and a join4 function that joins 3 and 4 strings respectively... and the function can be nested for more...
