Re: questions about OpenLDAP client librairies NT porting

If you "simply" build ldapsearch etc from main.dsw using MSVC then the libraries are built automatically.  The libraries are static but could probably be built as dll if required.  You can avoid using Cyrus by modifying portable.h and removing the define HAVE_CYRUS.  I don't know if the same is true of the other components, try it and see.
The NT port of 2.0.6 seems quite solid.
See the faq-o-matic on NT port.
Good luck.

I don't know the answers for MSVC, I presume that you can build just liblber and libldap, as static libraries.
If you want to use GCC and Mingw32, then the answer is yes, you can build just the client libraries, and you
can build static or DLL, your choice.

Subject: questions about OpenLDAP client librairies NT porting

I'm planning to use a Windows NT platform to perform
ldapsearch and ldapmodify operations using the OpenLDAPv2
clients librairies.
so, here are my questions :
Are the client librairies ported to MS Visual C++ ?
Is it possible to compile only these libraires (without slapd, slurpd, Cyrius SASL,
POSIX regex, Sleepcat's Berkeeley DB, ...) ?
How are the librairies built ? static or DLL ?
Thanks in advance,
Elouen LANOË
