smplayer 0.6.9 b4 fails to start

Description

Having updated smplayer from 0.6.9b2 to this b4 build I clicked on my smplayer program object to start it.

This failed instead displaying the "Cannot start ..." dialog. I clicked Cancel to this dialog and tried to start the program from the command line. This is the result:-

[J:\PROGRAMS\MULTIMEDIA\SMPLAYER]smplayer SYS1804: The system cannot find the file STDCPP.

[J:\PROGRAMS\MULTIMEDIA\SMPLAYER]

So, looks like a file - possibly STDCPP.DLL - is missing.

I have qt 4.7.3 correctly installed and working fine with the few qt apps I use eg smplayer 0.6.9b2 and qBittorrent 2.8.5

So, what else do I need and where do I get it from? - Might be an idea to add this information to the readme supplied with smplayer 0.6.9b4

I suspect that I may have found the missing file - looks like it is in ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/gcc4core-1_2_1.wpi

Having downloaded the above file I then started it. Looks like there is a problem with the script for this package.

It checks for klibc 0.6.4 and FAILS to find the installed libc64 files.

I think this may be because it checks the Warpin database - but the libc064 files are supplied in a ZIP file.

So, the above WPI package is no use... unless I unpack it with that useful workaround called WPIView.

Having used WPIView to extract the *.dll files to \ecs\dll I can now run smplayer 0.6.9b4 which seems to be working fine - so far.

So, The smplayer readme file needs to mention the requirement of the files contained in gcc4core-1_2_1.wpi and the script in that Warpin package needs fixing.
