View Full Version : ObPlacer XML .81 problem
04 Aug 2005, 22:24
When I go to run the program, it says that the runtime files are not installed, so I installed it again but I still get the same problem. What do I do now?
Did you use the full runtime installer version? That should make sure all required runtime files are there. If you already did that, I will have to add some logging so I can see which files ObPlacer XML thinks are missing.

Yes, I did use the installer, but the runtimes are still missing:
And are they there when you look in your windows system32 folder?
Btw, do you have your Windows installed in the normal c:\windows folder or maybe somewhere else?

Windows is installed in the normal place, and I just checked the System32 folder but no runtime files were located.

Okay, I used my computer genious ( :rolleyes: ) to solve the problem. I am assuming that everybody is running a Windows XP computer which installs all of the DLL files in the System32 folder automaticly. For some odd reason though, my files were installed into the Windows 98 "System" folder. (I use Windows 98SE). I extracted the dlls from the system folder and moved them to the system32 folder. Problem solved.
Thanks, in the next version I will make the code a bit more flexible, so that it will also recognise the DLL files when they are placed in the system folder. I did not think of this before :).

I'm sorry I am being such a pain with random problems, 2 new (and major)ones popped up today. When I go onto flightsim with ObPlacer open, flightsim locks up. If I open ObPlacer after flightsim is started, restoring the flightsim window locks up the computer. Also, once I do get a xml finished (i did it without flightsim) ObPlacer wont compile. I ask it to but it ends up freezing. For the meantime, I am using BGL Comp on its own.
So, do you know what might be going wrong? Thanks again arno.
For the first problem I have no idea what could be causing it. I am switching between Fs2004 and ObPlacer XML a lot and never had trouble.
ObPlacer XML checks once in a while if a connection with FSUIPC can be made or is still there. But I doubt this can cause your problem.
For the compilation, do you get any errors or so? I think someone reported a problem like this before, but I could never reproduce it. Do you get the screen that shows the compilation progress or does it lock up before that?

Locks up before starting anything.
Also my temporary remedy for the flightsim lockup is the following: I open flightsim, use Tcalc to find the latitude and longitude, then I close flightsim and insert the coordinates into ObPlacer.
Thanks for the info. I will try to figure out what causes the problem. But it might be hard to find, as I can not reproduce it here of course.
