Program distribution question

Post by Group W »

I've used a purchased version of DPlot to write a program which calls functions in DPLOTLIB.DLL to draw a graph from data in a file. I assumed that, like other third-party libraries I've purchased, I could distribute the compiled program with the library to allow another person to use it to plot data from other files they provide. But I haven't been able to do this.

From carefully reading the DPlot help information, it appears that others can use the program only if I restrict my program to use features present in DPlotJr, and that programs written using features in DPlot but not in DPlotJr can be run only on my machine.

Is this true?

If not, what files do I need to distribute and what registry entries do I need to make in order to allow my program to be functional on another machine?
