+ Building instructions for the DLL versions of Zlib 1.21
+ This directory contains projects that build zlib and minizip using
+ Microsoft Visual C++ 7.0/7.1.
+ You don't need to build these projects yourself. You can download the
+ binaries from:
+ More information can be found at this site.
+ Build instructions
+ - Unzip zlib*.zip and copy the files from contrib\vstudio\vc7,
+ from contrib\vstudio\masmx86 and from contrib\minizip into the same
+ - Download the crtdll library from
+ Unzip crtdll.zip to extract crtdll.lib.
+ - If you are using x86, use the Release target.
+ - Open zlibvc.sln with Microsoft Visual C++ 7.0 or 7.1
+ (Visual Studio .Net 2002 or 2003).
+ - To use zlibwapi.dll in your application, you must define the
+ macro ZLIB_WINAPI when compiling your application's source files.
+ Additional notes
+ - This DLL, named zlibwapi.dll, is compatible to the old zlib.dll built
+ by Gilles Vollant from the zlib 1.1.x sources, and distributed at
+ It uses the WINAPI calling convention for the exported functions, and
+ includes the minizip functionality. If your application needs that
+ particular build of zlib.dll, you can rename zlibwapi.dll to zlib.dll.
+ - The new DLL was renamed because there exist several incompatible
+ versions of zlib.dll on the Internet.
+ - There is also an official DLL build of zlib, named zlib1.dll. This one
+ is exporting the functions using the CDECL convention. See the file
+ win32\DLL_FAQ.txt found in this zlib distribution.
+ - There used to be a ZLIB_DLL macro in zlib 1.1.x, but now this symbol
+ has a slightly different effect. To avoid compatibility problems, do
+ not define it here.
