Xojo Code to Draw Chemical Structures from SMILES

I know I’m not the only chemist here…

Has anybody ground a free way to draw chemical structures from SMILES data?
I ideally I would like to be able to package a dll/dylib the app that I can call through the Shell Class.

I know about Open Babel which is suppose tot be Xplatform but needs to be installed . While ideal it worked on Windows OK so is a fall back at least there

On the Mac, after install it failed the conversion saying I might need other libraries…

So any one here have a better solution?
