running DSSR in windows
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:31:44 pm »
When I'm trying to run DSSR in windows 7, an error message popped out saying "The program can't start because msys-2.0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."
How can I deal with it?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for using DSSR, and for posting your question on the Forum!

I've just tried to run DSSR on Windows 7, and I can reproduce your reported error message. This error should not be there: I tested DSSR a while ago and it worked on native Windows without installing msys-2.0.dll. Obviously something has happened. I will try to get this issue resolved ASAP.

Thanks for reporting.

As a followup to my previous response, I've re-compiled DSSR (and SNAP) and updated the download binaries. DSSR should now work in *native Windows* without needing msys-2.0.dll. Please have a try and report back if it works as expected.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun
