Vista and up: CardGames.dll (was: Delphi – back in 1996 – CARDS.DLL component wrapper in Delphi 1 and 2!)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/02/19

About 3 years ago, I wrote a small article about the Cards.dll that I encapsulated even longer ago.

I just did some looking around to see on which versions of Windows Cards.dll was still available, as Card.dll has been there since the Windows 16-bit era.

Conclusion: this C# example shows was available on Windows XP, but it seems not available on Windows Vista and up.

The successor is CardGames.dll, which is far bigger than Cards.dll, only has resources (but way more than Cards.dll), and no code.

I’ll probably use XN Resource Editor 3.1 for some investigation later on to see how to get some demos running on more modern versions of Windows (:

    In my beginning with Delphi I wrote card game called TarneebXP using cards.dll it’s still there in . it was a naive game experience but it was a lot of fun also. The cards drawing in Vista and up systems looks more better and it will be awesome if we could wrap it.

        It’s an old code, you know :) And it was my first steps in programming so, I think it will not be easy mission to add multi languages support, but, I’ll see what I can do. Yet, I think it is a good idea to look at your eight years old code and measure your craft development. let me see :)
