All tools come with a no-brainer auto install. The location of all products is hard wired to the same folder because no individual tool stands alone. They all require the same dos path environ string to find each other. Because individual tools are independently added to the toolset when you decide to, they can't be 'just anywhere'. After a decade of use, dePbo dll has come to a crossroad, where, in order to continue it must split into component parts so that frequent upgrades to the dll as bis move goalposts don't impose penalties on the users by needing ever-increasingly large downloads to keep up.

To this end, 'oem dlls' are provided for 3rd party, open source, software that is not really part of dePbo proper but were merely containered within it. Formerly supplied internally, this was as convenience to users. Now, it has become a penalty due to the payload involved. The chances of these additional dlls being changed are very low.

Hence the desirability of isolating them. You MUST download this dll, once, for any of the tools, including this one, to work. It is rare to exceptional that your exe will change. Improvements to the dll happen often. It is your responsibility to read thru the specific tool documentation or examine it's docs folder to discover the extra goodies if any.

It may already be installed on your system via other application downloads unrelated to these tools.

It has been in existence for some years as the tool behind cwr2. A mod that packs dozens of pbos for distribution. Selecting any one of the above 'Source Folders' will generate one, or, multiple pbos determined by the content of that source folder and it's children if any.

Folders of consequence : The presence of a config. Note that any subsequent configs in child folders are NOT pbo's in their own right. They become part of the classic, 'multiple addons within a single pbo'. This is the method by which you initially release one big pbo, and for subsequent patches to plants eg you merely repack plants!!!

Be aware: All mikero's tools will initially frustrate you. Better to frustrate you before you load Arma, than constant crash to desktops. You will come to prefer professional results over persistent, build, start game, wait crash, build start game, wait crash, build The dll is quite likely to give you a specific reason for the bad result, and it expects you to fix it.

The most forbidding of all errors is your addon works, but unknown to you at the time, destroys all others. The dll wont let you. Expect to be frustrated and thank me later. It utilises pal2pace, dssSignFile, and binarize. Both are accommodated. All other file types are handled by the dll. This is the mod folder. It is NOT the destination of the pbo, it is the root of the destination s. The mod folder can be anywhere. Is always specified from the root drive.

There are variations on this simple folder topology based mostly on your own creativity and imagination. Note that configs within configs are not deemed to be pbo's in their own right. It is a reasonably common practice to have multiple addons configs in the same pbo. It prevents crash to desktops and assists in correct loading order. If you wish to build addons without configs, without a cfgpatches class, this quality tool is not for you.

You can view the output with mild interest to see whether specific files are being compressed eg, or rapified eg, or simply being excluded. At the end of the day, EITHER, you get no errors, OR, you will get an error listed as the last message on the console and an accompanying messageBox to warn you of the failure.

As a result, the packer can only assume everything is ok.
