Yes, I am still here! [sm=happy0005.gif]
Your deduction is correct. These DLL files are part of the MS Visual
Studio that was used to build Warcab. Theses files usually end up on
a PC via installs of "Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2003 Redistributable".
These files are now quite old, dating back from 2006, so while they
used to be quite easily found back in the day of XP and Windows 7,
they are much harder to come by today.
Anyhow, a good thing you found this out, because as it turns out I
was distributing warcab in a kind of crippled condition because of
these DLL files. I never noticed this because I used to be on XP
until a couple of months ago, and you were apparently just lucky.
I am a bit surprised nobody else complained about this before.
Ok, so in the coming days I will create a 0.6.3 release that also
contains these important DLL files. In the mean time, I will send
you a mail with a zip file (msvc71dll.zip) containing the DLL files.
They are too big to attach to this post.
Now, where to put these DLL files? Just place them in your main
warcab folder, the one containing the warcab.exe, spwawlib.dll and
