Hello everyone,

I would like to know how to add a component from the TRNLIB library to TRNSYS. 
The TRNLIB library is mostly only providing the fortran source code and a component description in .txt format. 
However, to get to use a component, one also needs the proforma file, the project file and to create (to "build") a DLL, linking the component to TRNSYS.

To create my own components, I actually use the "new component" interface in TRNSYS, export the component in C++ format and complete the source code via Visual Studio. 

I guess that there is some easy way to generate the proforma/DLL/project file by compiling the Fortran code, but I am not so gifted when it comes to computer science.

Can someone please give me hints on how to use the TRNLIB components ? The software to use ? 

Thank you very much and have a nice day !
