I made this realllly simple plugin... works fine on my bot

But the guy I made it for, and other people, aren't able to !load it... It says something like 'Unable to load requested plugin'

Is there anything I could have done? Like compiling options or something?

Using Visual Studio 2005 if that can help

Here's the plugin

What version of Mervbot sources are you compiling against?
I've had lots of problems when I was compiling against old sources (build 38) while people were trying to load it on build 46.

On the other hand, have you tryed simply rebuilding the plugin? I've also had a case with a corrupt plugin which made it impossible to get it loaded.

It did the same thing for 2 versions of the same plugin... so yeah I rebuilt

He had merv .45, I had .46, didn't work;
He got .46, still didn't work;
I copied significant files in my mervbot folder (the exe and plugins and needed txt's) to another folder. Worked for me. Sent him that folder, still didnt work for him

I've had some problems with VS 2005 needing a ton of external dependencies that don't ship with windows. Look at what MSDN says to ship with a product, and try sending them to your bot host along with your plugin.

i sent him the visual studio runtime library dll's... (msvcm80.dll, msvcp80.dll, msvcr80.dll)
we'll see if it works... the Dependency Walker (depends.exe) shows some references to msvcr80.dll so...

Didn't work


But even if it was dependency-related, wouldn't it !load anyway, but just crash or don't do much?

Did any of you try it?

I had this same problem with Visual Studio 2005. I never fixed it, I just compiled with Visual Studio 6.0 and it worked fine for the other person.

yeah I guess I'll do that... VS2005 was good for the learning phase of merv/c++, cause the intellisense works so much better... But I'm confortable enough now so...

thanks

Old topic, but I'll reply anyway in case someone runs into the same problem.

You can use VS 2005 / 2008 if you import a project created with VC++ 6. This makes VS compile the projects with msvcrt.dll instead of the newer dlls.

Using STL (maps, strings, vectors, etc) doesn't seem to work though.

In VS 2005 this worked for me:

In project -> *plugin name* properties

Configuration properties ->

Use of ATL: Static link to ATL
Minimize CRT use Use in ATL: Yes


The size of .dll should usually increase when going to those options.

I wouldn't call replying to the topic that is on top of the page "bumping". And anyway, two latest post before yours did actually provide solutions to the unsolved problem, which shouldn't be a bad thing usually.

Sorry for trying to help icon_wink.gif

Bump #1 was from October 2007 to December 2008. See Deathonline's post compared to the one before
