Sdif.dll not loading on startup

Hi,
I installed om6.15 on windows 10 from
https://github.com/openmusic-project/openmusic/releases/download/v6.15/OM-6.15-Windows-Installer.exe
The sdif.dll is there but it doesn’t load on startup (see attached pic)
Best regards,

Dear RC,

You reported elsewhere the trouble you have loading omaudiolib. Is the issue fixed ?
And how did you fix it ?
For the time being i don’t have a windows 10 to check it out.

Hi,
No, I just posted it here in the forum and until now I haven’t found a solution. A similar problem happens with OMAudioLib.dll, reported here:


This both issues made om unable to start.
Best regards,
rc

Did you succeed before that to run om615 on windows 10 ?
Maybe a windows upgrade is the cause ?
Can you give us more details ?

No succeed by the moment.
Before I was using an old version (6.12 i think) with win7.
After upgrading to win10 ltsc 2019 I got those errors.
Of course, the upgrade is the problem.
Is there a specific edition of win10 to run om, or should I install other stuff?
best regards,
rc

Hello,

I tried a new install of OM 6.15 on my Windows 10 laptop. Works OK…none of above messages. I suspect Windows deleted some files during upgrade process. I think upgrade deletes anything it thinks will not be compatible with Win10.

I have a Win 7 machine that will get an upgrade at some point and I intend to uninstall all my open source programs and reinstall after upgrade.

Hope this is helpful.

hello,
i’m getting the same sdif error on startup. has anyone found how to fix it?

thanks in advance,

Dear Perti,

Is it the problem of loading only cincerns the sdif.dll?
Do you have midi working?

If it is the case, first of all, this doesn’t concern upgrading. All .dll are included in the om folder and should work. However, it might be a problem with cpu compatibility.
Can you give us the characteristics of you machine regarding cpu?

Here it’s working on a virtualmachine:


on a cpu:

hello karim,

midi is working ok. cpu is an old Intel Core i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz which runs fine with other softwares. the sdif.dll file is there but nonetheless om complains at startup. it’s not fatal as i can continue working after that.
thanks again karim,

perti

Thanx Perti for your answer.

I will investigate and try to find out if it is the cpu architecture that is causing the trouble, i doubt since the i5 is an intel, it should work.
One last question, you did put OM installation in C;.Program files(x86) folder and not on an external drive say like D:’ or E:\ ?

K

thanks again for investigating this. and yes, om is in C:\Program files(x86). this on an intel i5 machine with 8gb ram.
btw, i have just tried installing on an amd ryzen 5 pc and works out-of-the-box. :thinking:

perti

Thanx Perti,

This means, we might have ti recompile yje lib for this processor.
Once my update on win10 is over, (what a tiresome update 2h and going…) , i will try to see if i can recompile it for All processors.

oh karim, if no other user needs it, i can still use my mac. this is an old processor i’m just using for a couple of months. maybe it’s not worth the time and effort. unless, as i’ve said, it’s useful for other users.
thanks anyway karim, you always have a great predisposition to help.
best regards,
perti
