Unity Sfml - Missing Dlls, One Of Them : Msvcr100D.dll

Recommended Posts

So, I tried setting up visual studio community 2015 with SFML, after doing all linking I tried to run a simple test application, which resulted in several error boxes showing up saying the the following dll files were missing : 

 

MSVCR100D.dll

MSVCP100D.dll

MSVCR100D.dll

MSVCP100D.dll

 

They displayed in that order, and a new error box popped up when I clicked "ok", and for some reason it said that the same files were missing twice for each file.

 

After a while of googling I found an article which said that the "D" at the end of the file names (but before the file type) stood for "Debug".

So, I tried running it in Release mode instead which gave me the exact same errors.

 

I don't think ti's my code that is wrong, but just in case here it is : 

#include <iostream>
#include <SFML/Window.hpp>

int main()
{
	sf::Window window(sf::VideoMode(800, 600), "Test");
	bool framerateLimit = 0;
	bool useVsync = true;
	
	if (framerateLimit > 0)
	{
		window.setFramerateLimit(framerateLimit);
	}

	window.setVerticalSyncEnabled(useVsync);

	while (window.isOpen())
	{
		sf::Event evnt;
		while (window.pollEvent(evnt))
		{
			if (evnt.type == sf::Event::Closed)
			{
				window.close();
			}
		}

		window.setActive();
		window.display();

	}

	std::cout << "Hello World" << std::endl;
}

Those libraries are Visual Studio 2010 versions. I can only speculate as to why SFML is looking for them instead of the 2015 versions that (presumably) you do have installed...

 

Maybe I downloaded the wrong version of SFML? I'll check once I have access to my other pc. :3

Yeah, turns out I downloaded the 2010 version instead of 2015, I just assumed the latest was on top of the download list. >.>

Nevermind still getting the same errors...

Then you are not linking with your new SFML, haven't replaced all of the DLLs from the previous version, linking to something else which pulls in the MSVC 2010 runtime or SFML has not been built correctly and something in its dependencies pulls in the old runtime.

I usually do not even bother with precompiled libraries. I once ran into a precompiled library which pulled in an unexpected (and also completely unneeded) dependency which was also present on most systems (most, not all). Identifiying that as the problem for some select few customers took quite some time, especially since the error message was extremely unspecific and unlike the usual "I'm just missing that DLL I want".
Building libraries yourself as a matter of course will not only force you to gain some skill points in some areas otherwise neglected, it will also be an insurance for the future. Getting all the libraries you need for that specific version of MSVC you want can be quite futile. If you need more special build settings (or a compiler/runtime not usually used on your platform of choice) it can quickly become extremely impossible.

I have no idea why it didn't work, but I decided to re-download SFML again, and try re-linking it once again, and it worked.

Very confused, but at least it's working.

Maybe I just missed some files 2 times in a row, somehow.

    • By STRATUM the Game
      Hey, everyone! This is my first post here.
      I would like to know what you think about my project called STRATUM. It's a 2D platformer that is heavily based on storytelling and boss fighting while trekking through the world.

      Everything in STRATUM takes place in the first century AD, in a world that wraps our own universe, called  The Stratum. A parallel Universe that is the home of the Christian deities . In this game you will play as a Dacian warrior, unfamiliar with everything in this world, you’ll get to know and understand The Stratum together with him.
      The main thing that I want with STRATUM is to reinvent the known lore and history of the Christian deities and realms. 
      The story is unconventional, it plays down a lot of the mysticism of Hell or Heaven and it gives it a more rational view while keeping the fantastic in it. What do I mean by that? Well, think about Hell. What do you know about it? It's a bad place where bad people go, right? Well, that's not the case in STRATUM. I don't want to describe such a world. In STRATUM, there is a reason for everything, especially for the way Hell is what it is in the game. "Hell" is called The Black Stratum in the game.
      This world is not very different from Earth, but it is governed by different natural laws.
      The story will also involve the reason why this world entered in touch with ours.

       
      What do you think about all that I said? Would you be interested in such a game? I have to say that everything is just a work of fiction made with my imagination. I do not want to offend anyone's beliefs.
      I want this to be a one man game. I have been working alone on it (this was my decision from the beginning) from art to effects to programming to music to sound effects to everything.
      I also have a youtube video HERE if you want to see the way the game moves and the way my music sounds.
      Please, any kind of feedback will be highly appreciated. If you have something bad to say, do it, don't keep it for yourself only. I want to hear anything that you don't like about my project.

      Hi, it's my first post on this forum and I would like to share the game I am working on at the moment.
      Graphics have been made with Blender3D using Cycle as a renderer and I am using Unity3D. It's a 2D game, one touch side-scrolling game for iOS and Android.
      Here some pictures, and you can have a look to the gameplay on this video :
      Feedbacks ?
      And if you want to try it, send me your email and I will add you to the beta tester list!
