When creating a Quick library using the MOUSE.LIB library (from the"Microsoft Mouse Programmer's Reference Guide") for use withQuickBasic 4.00 or 4.00b or Basic compiler 6.00 or 6.00b, you mustplace another object module or library before MOUSE.LIB in the Quicklibrary. This can be accomplished using any other object module orlibrary and the following LINK syntax:
LINK /Q otherlib+MOUSE.LIB, MOUSE.QLB,, BQLB40.LIB
If MOUSE.LIB is the first (or only) element in the Quick library,trying to load the Quick library into QuickBasic 4.00 or 4.00b orBasic compiler 6.00 or 6.00b (with QB /L Mouse.QLB) results in an"Error loading file - invalid format" error message. This problem doesnot occur in QuickBasic 4.50 or Basic PDS 7.00.
