There is a bug in QB 4.0(b) that causes a bogus "Invalid Library" error. What
happens is that QB barfs on certain data apearing in the
beginning of the QLB. What you would need to do is to move
.OBJs around. For instance, PDQComm suffers from this
problem. I recomend in the README that they add QB.LIB in
front of COMMQB4.LIB to create a new QLB.


That creates a QLB that will work. This bug has been fixed in 4.5 and PDS.
