Message 49399 - Posted: 17 Jun 2011, 21:44:04 UTC - in response to Message 49394.  

Well, in fact, the problem is not the same.

In *086 I don't see static link to msvcrt.dll. It is dynamic. Therefore this application does not run due to absence of msvcrt.dll in the system.

In most of the cases machines are clean and don't have CRT library installed. Can you compile it with static CRT? I.e., /MT switch and not /MD. This will increase size of the binary, but it will make sure people would not have to dig and see what's wrong.

In this particular case it is blaming it cannot find the function lc_codepage_func(...) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff730817.aspx - from VS 2010 CRT !

Thank you!
I did compile with the static CRT in the old versions. I've found conflicting MSDN documentation. As far as I can tell, before 2005 it seems it was fine to use the system msvcrt.dll. After that they tell you to ship one or use the static one. The VS 2010 one doesn't work on versions before XP SP2, so that includes 2000. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2005279 I'll see if I can try again with an older version

You can contact me in PM to send the updated executable to test. I support my software in 2k, so I have a bunch of tests machine ready to test your changes.

It will save some time for you.

0.88 is rebuilt with VS2008 libraries, doesn't have EncodePointer, and also fixes SSE3 detection on Windows 2000 + XP + Server 2003
