Hello to the community,

I use c++builder in RAD XE8 to develop DLL's file.
I can set the "target file extension" in project options for 3 chars extensions (ie ".usr") but for longer extensions (ie ".usr-win32") the compiler always add ".dll" at the end so I have finally the file name "xxxxx.usr-win32.dll"
Is there any solution to set an extension longer than 3 chars?
thanks for your help

What about a postbuild event?
