Make OpenAL32.dll invisible
« on: July 07, 2012, 10:42:09 pm »

Would be nice to remove the openal32.dll depndency. Could OpenAL be staticly linked against SFML Audio?

Not by default, since the license is not compatible. However, if your own project has a compatible license, you can recompile everything and link it statically.

Another option is to move the DLL to the default lookup directory which should be C:\Windows\system32

Then you dont need to have the dll there.

But i warn you, this is a messy solution.. You still need to make sure the DLL is installed on the system and there will be a mess if more than one version of it is required by the softwares.
