Registering midas.dll without Admin privileges

0

I have an application that uses midas.dll because it contains TClientDataSets.  I would like to have this run under non-Administrative accounts.  It appears that midas.dll does not export the DllInstall method to register itself only for the current user.  Can/will Embarcadero change it so that it will?  This would be really helpful for me.

    Hi Roger,

    if you add the unit midaslib to the uses clause of your code, you won't need midas.dll for your application. The only disadvantage that I know is that the executable will get some Kilobytes larger. But it makes distibution of your software a little bit easier.

    Hope that helps - kind Regards
    Joachim

      Sorry for all those identical replies, but I get no positive reponse after clicking the "Reply" button and the Webpage still tells me "There are no replies here yet" - only when I open the page in a new browser window, I see that I already posted the same message 7 times :-(

       

      Maybe Embarcadero could revise the Webpage to make it more user-friendly ;-)
