Arrow dgtebdll.dll (setup, version 1.35 = 1,45 MB)
You need this file for DGT clock XP.
Please copy this file to the Windows system directory or the engine directory for the chess engines that need this. The system directory is by default C:\Windows\System for Windows 95/98/98SE/ME, for Windows NT/2000 this is C:\WINNT\System32 while for Windows 2003,XP and Vista this is C:\Windows\system32. If you have not installed Windows in C:\Windows or C:\WINNT then you will need to look in the registry with "regedit.exe" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion to find out what the root directory of Windows is ("SystemRoot") and the system directory is a subdirectory to this, so if you have installed it to "C:\Operating system" the system directory is either "C:\Operating system\system" for Windows 95/98/98SE/ME or "C:\Operating system\system32" for Windows NT/2000/Xp/2003/Vista"
