Further post from: Richard Haselgrove

Thanks Byron.

Since then, I've found another dependency (on pthreadGC2_64.dll) - with both DLLs manually downloaded and popped into the project folder, the app just about runs:

But 0.36 credits still doesn't allow me to post. Perhaps you could do the honours again?

Richard Haselgrove asked if some one would copy and paste the following:

Could somebody with posting rights copy the following information to the project's News thread, please? Their message boards are locked up so tight that a new users can't even post an explanation for why their new app isn't going to give them enough credit to post...

0xC0000135 isn't exactly an unknown error - it means 'The application failed to initialize properly'. That's usually a missing DLL - and no, thank you Google, NOT usually the silly 'dot Net' framework.

Sure enough, trusty old Dependency Walker indicates a need for LIBGOMP_64-1.DLL, and the app_version supplied for the app doesn't reference it:

<app_version>
    <app_name>milkyway_nbody</app_name>
    <version_num>94</version_num>
    <platform>windows_x86_64</platform>
    <avg_ncpus>1.000000</avg_ncpus>
    <max_ncpus>1.000000</max_ncpus>
    <flops>2503477159.822932</flops>
    <api_version>6.13.0</api_version>
    <file_ref>
        <file_name>milkyway_nbody_0.94_windows_x86_64__mt.exe</file_name>
        <main_program/>
    </file_ref>
</app_version>

Also, I was expecting this to be a multi-threaded app, and I see _mt at the end of the file name: yet there's no MT plan class, and <max_ncpus> is just 1. If the app itself is going to try to use more cores than BOINC frees for it, that's going to cause major scheduling problems.
