Simply Solutions Updates Visual DLL
For Immediate Release Wednesday, June 18, 1997
Lake Tahoe, NV -- Today Simply Solutions announced the availability of the new release of Visual DLL, its flagship product for creating standard Windows DLL's with Microsoft Visual Basic. Version 2.1 of Visual DLL adds support for Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0 and its ActiveX technology. Among the features of Visual DLL is the ability to create true 32-bit dynamic-link libraries compatible with Windows 95 and Windows NT. Visual DLL is compatible with Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0, Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0 16-bit and 32-bit and Microsoft Visual Basic 3.0. Its ability to create standard Microsoft Windows DLL's with true function exports using Microsoft Visual Basic without requiring development tools such as a C compiler or the Windows Software Development Kit has been touted as a major accomplishment by the Visual Basic programming community. "With this new release, we hope to fill the gap left void by Microsoft and their ActiveX technology by fulfilling the need for creating standard Windows DLL's with Visual Basic. By being able to create standard DLL's, Visual Basic programmers are now able to create DLL's that are directly callable by other programming languages such as C and Pascal, without requiring the Windows SDK", said Michelle Kasajian, president and founder of Simply Solutions Software Development Corporation.
Simply Solutions, founded in 1994, markets and supports Visual DLL. Simply Solutions is committed to providing helpful and practical solutions for Microsoft Visual Basic programmers and to provide exemplary technical support to its customers.

Visual DLL provides the capability for creating the types of programs that were previously not possible to create with Visual Basic. Since Visual DLL creates standard Windows DLL's, the DLL's can be called from low-level languages such as C and C++. To aid programmers, Visual DLL automatically creates C header and import library files and Basic 'Declare' statements to use for access from third-party applications. The DLL's created by Visual DLL use the same execution code that Visual Basic produces, thus all Visual Basic features, such as forms, OCX's, and native code compilation, are available inside of the produced DLL's.
