Version 1.0 of the OLE Developer's Toolkit is now available in the Software/Data Library. The toolkit contains the following files:
CLTEST.EXE         A standard application to test an OLE server

SRTEST.EXE         A standard application to test an OLE client

OLESPY.EXE         A utility that displays OLE function calls and
                   dynamic data exchange (DDE) messages

RETAIL directory   The OLE DLLs included with version 3.1 of the
                   Microsoft Windows operating system

DEBUG directory    The debugging version of the OLE DLLs that provide
                   OLE call tracing and FatalExit messages under
                   illegal conditions

OLESETUP.EXE       The setup program that copies the Toolkit files
                   into your Windows installation and creates or
                   updates the registration database. OLESETUP copies
                   the required DLLs to the SYSTEM directory of your
                   Windows installation (by default, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM).
                   If you prefer, you can update the registration
                   database manually. If OLESETUP updates the database,
                   it calls the REGLOAD utility to include the contents
                   of the INI.REG file.
NOTE: The Software Library toolkit file includes two sets of OLE DLLs: one in the RETAIL directory, the other in the DEBUG directory. Use the debugging DLLs for OLE call tracing and to debug OLE applications. Do not ship the debugging DLLs with your product.

To enable call tracing and debugging information, copy the debugging DLLs and symbol files to the SYSTEM directory of your Windows installation.
