Building without CDT codes

Post by Andrea » Mon Nov 20, 2023 7:21 pm


I'm in New Zealand so not using the ADA codes.

I'd like to compile the software (so I can make a change to SMS handling) but I'm running into an issue that it can't find CDT. That's true, I don't have the codes.

Is there a way to build without them? Or some other workaround, e.g. a stub version?

The 'stub' version of the CDT.dll can be found in the 'Required dlls' folder. ... red%20dlls

You'll want to follow similar steps that are required for OpenDentalHelp (drop the CDT reference and add it back):
Error: The name 'OpenDentalHelp' does not exist in the current context - In the OpenDental project, remove the OpenDentalHelp reference. Then right-click on "References" -> "Add Reference". Select the Browse dropdown and the Browse button. Locate the OpenDentalHelp.dll within the "Required dlls" folder and click Add.
The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.
