Do you are usings Visual Studio or XIDE?

P.S. I'm using self compiled versions of the VO class libraries, therefore the "strange" name

Hi Niels,

You're welcome!

If you find other difficulties, please drop a note here. I'll try to answer and to add it also to the X# Documentation Project,

Hi Niels,

strange....do you have applied the same compiler options also to the bBrowser library?

Guys, glad you have all resolved this, without help from us! In general, when you port code from vulcan to X#, you should be using the exact same compiler options in X# that also the vulcan app was using, we have intentionally used the exact same names in the properties pages of VS/XIDE, in order to make this as easy as possible.

Specifically about the "Clipper/Strict" error, the issue is that when you have a method defined as

METHOD Close() // no params or explicit return type

then the compiler does not know if it should be defined as a strongly typed method, or it is a VO-style calling convention method. Using the /vo5 (implicit CLIPPER calling convention) option, tells the compiler to treat such methods as CLIPPER, which is what the rest of the bBrowser code uses.

This is most probably due to a (one of the very few remaining) compiler problem, that you cannot have a class with the same name as the dll. Please check the options for this app, general page, what is the "Assembly Name" option set at? If it's bBrowser, then it will not work correctly, you will need to change it to something different, for example "bBrowserNet". I think the original value there as created by Joachim was "bTools.bBrowser".
