thanks for the instructions.
I will try to build it one of these days and see how far i get.
As for the zip, i installed it and it works, i can use the ldap lib now.
So as you said, it indeed seems to be a problem with the Inno setup.
Anyway, if the zip works, i'm happy :)
If i get around to building it and if i succeed, i will post a more
detailed report on how to do it.
