DLLs and Binaries

DDS Version 2.8.4 is the latest DDS release. It uses multi-thread for solving multiple hands in parallel providing maximum speed. If you already use Version 2 (2.x.y) DDS, DDS 2.8.4 offer higher speed and bug fixes. If you are a new user, 2.8.4 should be your choice provided that you have Windows Vista or a later Windows release. If you have Windows XP, you either need to use the single-thread DLL version of 2.8.4 or implement the multi-thread functions outside DDS 2.8.4 and use the thread-safe capability of DDS to make SolveBoard calls over parallel threads that you have created. DDS 2.8.4 cannot be used in Windows releases older than XP.

DDS Version 1.1.20 which is single-thread, is intended for replacement of an older Version 1 DLL for fixing bugs or for improved speed.

The 2.8.4 version compiles with Visual C++ 2010 or later for Windows and GCC/g++ with OpenMP for Cygwin, Linux and Mac OS.

The 1.1.20 version compiles with Visual C++ and MinGW/g++ for Windows and with GCC/g++ for Linux.

Both versions probably also compile with other C++ compiler alternatives.

Only a version 1 dds.dll can be used.
