Starting a Callable IDL Application

Starting a Callable IDL Application

You must provide your end users with instructions describing how to start your application. You may choose to provide users with the name and location of your application executable along with a launch command to execute, or (if you are using an installer for your application) with shell scripts, shortcuts, or Start menu items. The specific instructions you provide will depend on your end user’s platform.

Windows


To start a Callable IDL application if you have exported an IDL runtime distribution using the MAKE_RT procedure, change directories to the application\IDL_DIR\bin\bin.platform directory (where application is the name of the directory that contains your exported distribution, IDL_DIR is the IDL directory inside your application directory, and platform is either x86 or x86_64, depending on the verison of IDL your application relies on) and double-click on the executable file you created.

Alternately, you can use the Windows launch script.

The executable file must reside in the bin\bin.platform subdirectory of your exported application distribution. For your users’ convenience, you may want to create a Windows shortcut to the executable file in another location.

UNIX


To start a Callable IDL application if you have exported an IDL runtime distribution using the MAKE_RT procedure, change directories to the application/IDL_DIR/bin directory (where application is the name of the directory that contains your exported distribution and IDL_DIR is the IDL directory inside your application directory) and execute the renamed idl script file.
