What is DCC.INI for?

Post by memic » 14 Feb 2018, 09:57

In the TD Runtime Deploy Folder there is a DCC.INI File. What is this for?


There are also some other files I would like to know what are there for:
swcomp.exe
odbsal32.apl (why sourcefile .apl in deploy ??)
gptcfping.exe

(DCC) DCCi.ini is a configuration file for database connectivity.
Mainly described in TD Connecting SQLWindows Objects to Databases.pdf.

swcomp.exe is the old 16bit component to compress/decompress using SalStrCompress and SalStrUncompress.
It is only used when data is compressed in very old TD versions (16bit) and is never used on newer TD versions.
(this exe can not even be started on 64Bit Windows OS versions)

gptcfping.exe is to ping a SQLBase database.

For usage in cmd box:

Code: Select all

gptcfping.exe -help
odbsal32.apl for external function prototypes for all ODBC extensions to SAL.

No idea why it is in deploy.
