Posted 4 August 2017, 3:01 pm ESTHello NG,
I got a big problem when using AR1 and AR2 on the same machine (again).
We redistribute a newer Application using AR2, we included as posted here in the forum both the actrpt.dll AND actrpt2.dll in the setup project and redistribute both in the System32 folder of the target machine.
When there is another product installed using AR1 the newer Solution using AR2 breaks when hitting the print button (print preview works). When I deregister AR1, the reregister AR1 and then register AR2, AR2 works fine BUT the other Application using AR1 is not working any longer (No data in Preview ...).
We've already tried several approches to solve the problem (e.g using .local files ..).
I mean, what the heck, Is a largerly known company like DataDynamics not able to programm backwardcompatible COM-Components??
Do you do any testing with your products??
ANY IDEAS OR SOLUTIONS ??
Thanks in advance for all your help.
