ACTIVE TEMPLATE LIBRARY : DataProtocol Project Overview
AppWizard has created this DataProtocol project for you to use as the starting point for
writing your Dynamic Link Library (DLL).
This file contains a summary of what you will find in each of the files that
make up your project.
This is the main project file for VC++ projects generated using an Application Wizard.
It contains information about the version of Visual C++ that generated the file, and
information about the platforms, configurations, and project features selected with the
This file contains the IDL definitions of the type library, the interfaces
and co-classes defined in your project.
This file will be processed by the MIDL compiler to generate:
C++ interface definitions and GUID declarations (DataProtocol.h)
GUID definitions (DataProtocol_i.c)
A type library (DataProtocol.tlb)
Marshaling code (DataProtocol_p.c and dlldata.c)
This file contains the C++ interface definitions and GUID declarations of the
items defined in DataProtocol.idl. It will be regenerated by MIDL during compilation.
This file contains the object map and the implementation of your DLL's exports.
This is a listing of all of the Microsoft Windows resources that the
This module-definition file provides the linker with information about the exports
required by your DLL. It contains exports for:
Other standard files:
These files are used to build a precompiled header (PCH) file
named DataProtocol.pch and a precompiled types file named StdAfx.obj.
This is the standard header file that defines resource IDs.
Proxy/stub DLL project and module definition file:
This file is the project file for building a proxy/stub DLL if necessary.
The IDL file in the main project must contain at least one interface and you must
first compile the IDL file before building the proxy/stub DLL. This process generates
dlldata.c, DataProtocol_i.c and DataProtocol_p.c which are required
to build the proxy/stub DLL.
This module definition file provides the linker with information about the exports
required by the proxy/stub.
