Missing dll for MTTTY

Post by SeeCwriter » Wed Sep 30, 2020 1:58 pm

I'm trying to use the MTTTY serial terminal on a Win10 PC. I just copied the executable to a dir and ran it, as I've done on several other PCs. This time I get an error about MSVCR71.dll missing.

An internet search says that what is needed is that the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable package needs to be installed. I get that from Microsoft and install it. Same error. And a search for the dll turns up nothing.

So I get a copy from the nburn\pcbin directory on my development PC and put it in the same dir as MTTTY. Same error. I try to register the dll, and I get an error about the entry point not found.

I really don't want to install the NB suite. Is there something else I can do to get MTTTY to work?

Source is in

nburn\pctools\mttty....

Could try building it with free microsoft tools...

And that is not one of the DLL's my version of MTTTY shows being used...

All I know is that v2.9.1 and 2.9.2 have MSVCR71.dll in the pcbin directory, and v2.9.3 has that plus MCVCR120.dll.

Trying to build MTTTY throws errors.

I just installed v2.9.3 and now MTTTY works.

One possibility is windows permissions for the folder and/or files. The install process may handle that, while just copying in files may not.
