Default Updateing a module dll to Flexsim6

Hello I am trying to update a module dll to use it in Flexsim6. I have followed the steps in the 'Updating to a New Version' of the module Development documentation and I have two questions:

  1. When I open flexsim and compile there is no flexsimcontent.lib in my C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Flexsim\Flexsim6\compile\A folder.
  2. When I try to build my dll after copying all the files I get the following error:
    c:\program files (x86)\flexsim\flexsim6_moduledevelopment\modules\t al_m_extern\tal_m_extern\tal_m_extern\dllmain.cpp( 110): error C2039: 'getvarfastpointeroffset' : is not a member of 'objectdatatype'
    1> c:\program files (x86)\flexsim\flexsim6_moduledevelopment\modules\t al_m_extern\tal_m_extern\tal_m_extern\flexsimconte nt\objectdatatype.h(105) : see declaration of 'objectdatatype'

    Please let me know what I am doing wrong.
Esther

Hey Esther,
1. I think it's in the same directory as flexsimcontent.dll, not in the A directory, so C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Flexsim\Flexsim6\.
2. That's a method we took out of the objectdatatype, and for some reason we needed to define it in the dll, so if you go into dllmain.cpp, you should take out the definition of objectdatatype::getvarfastpointeroffset().

In my case the flexsimcontent.dll, *.lib, *.exp and *pdb are in the directory C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Flexsim\Flexsim6\compile\A

The flexsimcontent.dll is also in the directory C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Flexsim\Flexsim6\compile

(I'm using Windows 7 64bit and Visual Studio 2010 Professional)

Well I keep having problems with this as well. At home my computer shows under users\...\compile\A the files .dll, .exp and .lib

But my laptop shows in that directory only the .dll

Both machines have windows 7 64bits and visual studio express 2010 as compiler.

On the machine at home also the directories \B and \ipch and \_UpgradeReport_Files are created. Neither of these directories is present at my laptop.

Anyone with another suggestion?
