One problem seems to have something to do with zlib.dll which needs to be included in the VS project in order to create the 32-bit dll -- but it appears to be a 32-bit DLL and would be incompatible with at 64-bit link, I'd think.
    It's funny you should ask that. I have been attempting to do the same thing as of late but I haven't gotten around to any zlib.dll errors. Just loads of other errors lol. I'll let you know if I can get it compiled at a later date.

    I have the install for codebase 6.5 cb6maint_mdx_sa_c.exe. I purchased it in 2011. Not sure if you ever found the copy. I can share the install. Its about 7Mbs. I would be interested in finding out if anyone has made this work in .net.

    Works perfectly with .net. if you need help let me know. All I had to do was install the correct codebase dll on my pc and add the codebase module to my project. After that everything worked great.

    Not sure what the correct codebase DLLs are. Can you provide names, so I can look in my install. Also, was there a specific codebase product for supporting .net or was there just one product?

    Yes, sorry about that. I was not at my PC at the time.

    The current DLL I am using is c4dll.dll - Last modified 1/20/2003 at 11:25am. If you need this dll let me know I'm more than glad to pass it along. The particular .vb file for CodeBase that I use makes use of a lot of compatibility VB6 calls so you'll need to make a reference to Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility and Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.Data. If you need this file as well do let me know I can make it available to you as well. Add me on Skype if you need more help. My username is trevmonshta2. That should be all you need to get running. I've developed numerous VB.Net desktop applications as well as a number of ASP.Net applications using CodeBase and continue to do so.

    Hi All,
    I see I'm not the only one struggling with codebase files. I have to do some maintenance on an old program I did 10-12 years ago. Just add a few fields. Codebase has to be installed on my newer dev. machine. I have found my Codebase 6.5 manuals and CD, but cannot fine the R3 update file. Does anyone have a copy they can send? I found a link in the thread but no longer works.

    Thanks

    If you have Skype Irondude go ahead and add me(trevmonshta2). You can elaborate a little more with me on what you need and I'll hopefully get you what you need.

    Happy to discuss with people who continue to work with CodeBase ... A very great product.
    Just a question ( just in case because the product does not exist any more ... ) can you tell me how we can recompile the d4dll.dll
    In the build/msvc directory, I find 15 objects : c4class.BAT+.DSP+.LST, c4dll.cmd+.DSP, c4dll_compile.cmd, c4dll_compile_msvc.cmd, c4dll_lib.lst, c4dll_link.cmd, c4dll_link_msvc.cmd, c4lib.cmd+.DSP, c4lib.dsp, c4lib_compile.cmd, c4lib_link.cmd, c4source.lst.
    Can you tell me which object to use to recompile the DLL ? I know it's an easy question for you but I'm just a newbie in C++.
    Second question : which compiler do I need to use ? Visual Studio 12 or 14 or Microsoft Visual C++ 1.52, 2.0 or Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools : MSBuild, Arm Cross, Native Build ???

    Thanks a lot for the help of the professionnals of Microsoft C++.

    I hope a company will continue the business of Code Base ... who knows ?

    I now have a x64 c4dll. I was able to figure out how to compile it and got it all working. As far as I've tested it was correctly compiled. I had to use the Visual Studio 2008 compiler to get the least amount of grief. It was compiled x64(_M_AMD64). Once it compiled I tested if I could simply code4init in a x64 built windows forms application. Initialized no problems which it would not do originally with a x32(obvious reasons). If anyone would like help with compiling or other assistance contact me via my skype listed above, or send me a message here.

    Absolutely. There are a few requirements though. You will need to have installed the Codebase x64 Microsoft Addon that was provided with any of the most recent copies they provided(This contains the source files, and the batch files you'll need to compile it.), Visual Studio 2008 or 2010.

    If you have everything then you'll probably find that the batch files in msvc64 were meant to get the job done but they will crash so they need some minor modifications. They were targeting the Visual C++ 6.0 compiler originally which is a problem because if you're like me you don't have it or the service pack to make it work. I picked the next closest compiler VS2008. My copy of vs2008 was located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC.

    The batch file c4dll.bat might need some modifications. You may have to set the directory to your mscvc64 directory so that it can go up to root and find the source directory next to mscvc64.

    Use the cd command before the :COMPILE label and before the c4dll linker file copy command.

    Easiest way to setup your build environment is to open up command prompt or a developer command prompt and call the vs batch file.

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" x64 - Sets up the build environment for the right x64 compiler.

    Once this command is processed finally call c4dll.bat.

    "C:\codebase\cb_win64bit\msvc64\c4dll.bat" - My codebase x64 install location

    This worked for me at the very least.
