    Brilliant!
    Didn't think of that, and if I had I would've thought it wouldn't work!

    Nice to be printing again, after a hiatus due to busyness.

    The difference between my tools and the older tools, is that I found that the Cube3 files are actually an "archive" of sort that contains several files. Better yet, by using the editor and corresponding scripting tool, you can modify your Cube3 files and still be able to send the via wifi to the printer. But if the older tools continue to work for you, have at it.

    Buddy's tools are on a different level. I suppose one could move DLL's to system32. Damn, install tool!

    Hmm. Now you've got me thinking.

    1. I could update the installer to put the files in System32
    2. I could add the installation folder to the path so that the DLL's could be found no matter where the executable is located...
    3. I could rewrite some of the tools in C and get rid of the need for the DLLs.
      1. Decoder (which decodes the BFB from the encoded CUBE3 file)
      2. Encoder (which encodes the BFB back into a CUBE3 file)
      3. Extractor (which extracts all of the files from the CUBE3 file)
      4. Builder (which combines a set of files from an extracted CUBE3 file) Experimental

    4. I could create a shortcut to the tools on the desktop from the installer.
      1. I could add a custom install mode that would allow:
        1. the user to select which tools to install
        2. the user to select which shorts to installed tools to allow on the desktop


    What'cha all think? (and I should probably move this to the Cube3Editor page)

    Notes:
    For #1, This would require running my installer in Administrator mode, something a lot of people aren't comfortable with and invasive to the system.
    For #2, This is possible, but somewhat invasive to the system.
    For #3, probably not going to happen for the full editor, but for some of the smaller tools, as specified above, it could.
    For #4, this makes the most sense. I have done only a little work on the installer, but I could do more.

    For one commercial piece of software I use I needed to manually add a path location for finding certain DLL files. Basically an addition to the environment variables for search path.
