I've actually read a few tutorials on using it, but I just don't understand how to input the commands. Sponsor: #2pbjgame Members - Reputation: 100 Like 0Likes Like Posted 29 April 2008 - 12:18 AM Basically I need to know is how to do the -c <file location> thing, or the syntax for telling reimp to convert a file. #3Josh Petrie Moderators - Reputation: 2494 Like 0Likes Like Posted 29 April 2008 - 04:11 AM It's run from the command line. You can open a command prompt by going to Start -> Run and typing "cmd" then hitting enter. Then you can navigate to your project's directory via the "cd" commands and execute the reimp command; it looks like it's little more than "reimp filename.dll" but you can typically run these sorts of things without arguments to a get a usage/help message that explains how to use the program. Try that.

I don't understand the syntax...like c:\directory\reimp.exe -c dxguid.dll I can't get it to work. #5Kwizatz GDNet+ - Reputation: 1131 Like 0Likes Like Posted 30 April 2008 - 01:24 PM Quote:  Original post by jpetrieIt's run from the command line.

Try that. Actually it really is as simple as "reimp filename.lib", provided that the directory reimp.exe resides in is listed on the PATH environment variable and the command is given in the folder containing filename.lib. Here is the output of reimp without any arguments: Quote: $ reimpUsage: c:\MinGW\bin\reimp.exe [options] IMPLIB -s, --dump-symbols dump symbols to stdout -d, --only-def only create .def files -c, --keep-case keep case in lib*.a file names --dlltool use for dlltool --as use for assembler

Sorry but the idea of someone in a development forum not knowing how to use the CLI really baffles me [tears], am I the only one?.

Problem is, I type in the executables directory, and it sends me right back to my main c:\documents and settings\owner and if I run the executable file directly it just closes really fast. I didn't have these problems before win xp
