using dynaic dll's in borland

P: n/a
hi guys
i have created a invoice system but updating it to all our users takes
too long and makes me sick. i am trying to convert all modules to
dll's so they can update themselves.

my problem is as follows. i have a form that i compile to a dll and
can be called dynamically by the main form. i can even connect a
dataset on the form to the main form's connection(very vital because
the connection can change ) but i can't seem to call functions on the
main form from the called form. it keeps giving me an exeption and
kills my program.

i have never worked with dynamic dll's and making them too static won't
help.
what do i do?

Have you declared the main form in your exe with __export? Have you
used LoadLibrary with the exe? This is the same problem that I'm
working on. I'm planning to a facade class instead of the main form.
