storage of libraries in WM

Hi - I've got another question to ask you.

In order to distribute my applications, I understand that I can use "SetupBuilder" and furnish either the resulting CAB or the EXE to be used with Active-sync. I still haven't used it so I wanted to ask one question before trying it out.

In this regard, I am just wondering, where will SetupBuilder store the libraries included with my applications? Will they be stored in the application-directory of my program or will they be stored in a general directory of the WM (similar to the system or system32 in XP) to be (re-)used with other applications which might require them?

Is the storage-location of the libraries an option when using SetUpBuilder?

I'm only asking since if no "general storage-area" is used, I guess that I will end up with duplicate libraries in different application-folders.

Anyone who can clarify this for me? Thank you.

Kind regards,
moster67

Thank you. Now I also understand the meaning "merging" which I have read about here in the forum.

Since version 6.30 most libraries are merged during compilation with the executable.
The libraries that aren't merged should be copied to the same folder of the executable.
