Since IDDE is using a dll version of compiler that is frozen at the current release level, you need to use the exe version of the compiler for beta versions. After you install the beta compiler, the easiest way to do this is to open a console window, change to the project directory and do: smake -f [projectname].mak or smake -all -f [projectname].mak The former compiles and links for changed files, and the latter does a rebuild.

Why doesn't Walter provide a beta dll version of the compiler? Sometimes the corrections justify running a beta build. /gf

Wouldn't it be even better to only have a dll version of the compiler which is used by the IDDE and by the console frontend (dmc.exe/sc.exe)? bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?

Yes, it would be, but the dll interface to the IDDE grew so complicated it wasn't worthwhile.

Having a release and a beta works better for me, since I have developments and deployments to maintain. A dll only version would mean I would need a c:\dm-beta, or do something in the make file. As it is, I don't install the dll distributed in the beta. Richard
