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:
  • a Framework-dependent executable,
  • a self-contained executable,
  • the common WINDEV Framework.
Using a Framework-dependent executable
When using a Framework-dependent executable, the libraries are installed in the directory of each application. Therefore, each WINDEV application uses its own version of the libraries. Libraries can be renamed when you use a Framework-dependent executable.
Advantages of using a Framework-dependent executable:
  • Each application can use a different version of the Framework DLLs.
  • The Framework of a given application can be updated without affecting other applications.
  • The Framework can be renamed.
Using a self-contained executable
When the Framework is included in the executable file, it is a self-contained executable. The Framework DLLs are not extracted when the executable file is run.
Advantages of using a self-contained executable:
  • Self-contained executable.
  • The Framework DLLs are not extracted.
Remark : Depending on the features used by the application, it may not be possible to use a self-contained executable.
Using the common WINDEV Framework
When you use the common Framework, the libraries are installed in a common directory. These libraries are shared between all the WINDEV applications installed on the same computer.
Advantages of the common Framework:
  • The disk space used by the Framework (about 30 MB) is shared between all the applications.
  • The Framework is updated only once for all the applications installed.
  • The common Framework can be renamed.
Remark : When you use the common Framework, you can replace one or more DLLs (if a specific version is required, for example).
