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                   applicationSRTEST.EXE         A standard application to test an OLE client                   applicationOLESPY.EXE         A utility that displays OLE function calls and                   dynamic data exchange (DDE) messagesRETAIL directory   The OLE DLLs included with version 3.1 of the                   Microsoft Windows operating systemDEBUG directory    The debugging version of the OLE DLLs that provide                   OLE call tracing and FatalExit messages under                   illegal conditionsOLESETUP.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.
