    free xtra to load dll files?

    hwa-jun yu
      Hi everyone,
      Does anyone here know any free Xtra available to download with the ability to load dll files?
      I'm working on a project that needs to call additional functions from external dll.
      Immediate help is much appreciated as my project can't wait any longer.
      Thank you.

          You could write an ActiveX in VB that you can bring into Director that will
          interface with the DLL. If you already have VB it's free, especially if you
          work on it during your free time.

            I see.. work it out on VB in my free time.. so it's totally free.
            That should really works!
            Thanks for the help, Tim.
            But, I don't really know the differences between ActiveX and dll files.
            Is there a weakness and added value compared to each other?
            I've been specializing in Flash all this time, so I don't know other language very much.

              sorry, but you'll have to be satisfied with Tim's response or you can pay for a non-free one eg. GLU32 http://www.ravware.com/glu32.htm .... or turn it into a positive and look at it as an opportunity to learn another language. ;-)
