can you give us some more details when the application is crashing?



UweM's picture

I use a 'mfc' sample and a dialog with this message was displayed. Thats all. :-| No more
details (pity).

2 suggestions:
1) check the path for TKOpenGL.dll from the environment settings.
2) sometimes Windows doesn't use new environment variables directly. Do a logout and a login (faster than a reboot :-)))

in particular,
please check that CSF_GraphicShr variable points to the \TKOpenGl.dll

M's picture

You're right.

CSF_GraphicShr is no more mandatory since 4.0 (I think ...
If you upgraded a 3.0 or 3.1 version, this env. var. has not been updated and must still point to
OpenGl.dll (which is now TKOpenGl.dll).

You should read FAQ ...

A new installation a new luck. After the installation i make a logout and a login. Start
Sample QT -> Shell open -> click 'new' -> dll
'rtk.dll' is missing. I copying this dll to the
other libs (from 'ros\src\standard'). After click
'new' in the QT-example -> program finish without a message.
I start the mfc sample 'triangulation' -> 'Fatal Error During Graphic Initialisation'.
This is from my eventlog:

Anwendungspopup: Triangulation: TopologyTriangulation.exe - Fehler in Anwendung: Die Anweisung in "0x0165884a" verweist auf Speicher in "0xfefd0000". Der Vorgang
"read" konnte nicht auf dem Speicher durchgeführt werden.

Klicken Sie auf "OK", um das Programm zu beenden.
Klicken Sie auf "Abbrechen", um das Programm zu debuggen.

I have Win2000 with the latest service pack and VC6 S56 installed. All environment variable ar set.


UweM's picture

Oh ... a type error. I have VC6 SP5 installed.
