Component: odin Version: 0.8.8
Severity: medium Keywords:


Tried to run a program with Odin and the program (XTrkCAD 4.0.3a) won't start and comes with an error message that msimg32.dll is missing. I did ask about this and got back that it is a dll in XP. The program XTrkCAD 4.0.3a did install correctly without errors.

I copied the file from an XP installation. You can either put it in system32 or in the directory of the application you are trying to run. You may need to do that with other DLLs as well.

Thanks for the suggestion, downloaded it from an XP system and put it in the system32 directory. Running the program I get problems with the GDI32.DLL. (The application has called the non-existing api GDI32.DLL). Using the GDI32.DLL from XP gives kernel problems. So, something is not working or broken.

gdi32.dll is implemented in Odin, basically, if it is implemented in Odin then you cannot replace it from Windows. The error you gave for the api was only partial... it will give the API that is missing. Giving the full message may allow me a chance to implement it.
