For all the missing dll things on Windows
« on: November 22, 2014, 09:49:24 PM »
The X-moto installers for Windows are badly packed and miss libxml2-2.dll and com with two wrong dlls.
Here is how to fix it (Note: Don't download dll files from downloading sites. You don't know whether they are modified or not and they are insecure.):

1) Missing LibXml2-2.dll. Download it from the official website.
    a) go to ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2/win32/64bit/
    b) download the 32-bit one, currently it is ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2/win32/64bit/libxml2-2.9.2-win32-x86.7z
    c) find and extract libxml2-2.dll and place in C:\Program Files (x86)\XMoto
2) LibIconv-2.dll
    a) Download YAMB from http://yamb.unite-video.com/download.html
    b) install and note to check MKVExtract during installing
    c) you can find a copy of libIconv-2.dll in C:\Program Files (x86)\Yamb\mkvextract
    d) copy the dll to C:\Program Files (x86)\XMoto
3) zlib1.dll, the dll is too old and not working
    a) you can find a copy of zlib1.dll, in C:\Program Files (x86)\Yamb\mkvextract
    b) copy the dll to C:\Program Files (x86)\XMoto

It is hard to believe they put out installers with this quality.

What bug does this fix? I've know the installer was bad but it does work if you download the zip...
Did you know that the tip of a lighter flame smells like burnt nose hair?

The win32.zip works, don't use the setup files.

Hey,

     I believe that the installer is working fine now - I noticed a problem in the makefile for the installer, and submitted a correction that has since been published. Just download the latest exe from the site and it should work fine.

Cheers,
