I am evaluating the Gino graphics and interface utilities. I am still struggling how to link to the DLLs. They (about 20 different DLLs) are in the Gino installation C:\Program Files (x86)\gino\v8.5 . I would prefer to set a path in Plato, so that they are used when building and I can avoid direct linking to specific DLLs. Could someone help me out how to do this in Plato (if at all possible). I already double checked if all path and environment variables are set probably by the Gino install (they are). Thanks

One way is to create a project and then, from the Project Explorer window, right click on References, select Add References and add the DLLs (or stub LIBs) to the list. It doesn't matter if the DLL is not used. It will be added to the link list and used when required.

You can also add references when not in "project" mode.

An alternative is to create your own link list and run SLINK (or SLINK64 for 64 bits) from a command line.

Isn't there a requirement that you should not mix 32-bit and 64-bit dll's ?
I would assume that C:\Program Files (x86)\gino\v8.5 is 32-bit.

Yes. For a Plato project you would have different DLLs for Win32 and x64. The project settings are platform dependent in this context.
