    Help! I installed .034 Sodipodi but when I attempt to run the program it tells me that a DLL is missing, Zlib-1.dll? I think that was it.

    What do I do now?

      After a little digging here I found two bug reports the second of which had a solution for this error:

      - - - 1 - - -

      Missinf Dll file for Windows ME Version
      When I run sodipodi .33 or .34 the program tells me it
      cannot find zlib-1.dll and quits. When I checked the
      sodopodi directory on my drive I found zlib.dll but not
      zlib-1.dll. I am running windows ME. I downloded the ME
      versions.

      Hi,
      I have an PC Athlon 900 with 256 mb RAM and installed
      sodipodi 0.34 in windows 98 SE with all patches
      included .net, but probing run sodipodi shows
      message "not found file required zlib-1.dll" in folder
      sodipodi exist zlib.dll, then rename zlib.dll to zlib-1.dll and
      sodipodi run normally.
      why?
      is a normal?
      thanks and greetings from Chile in southamerica.
      PD. sorry by my bad english

      - - - end of bug reports - - -

      I'll try the solution in the second bug report and see if it works. I'll report back here.

      Update

      Renaming the file did not work. I had to copy all the gtk 2. stuff into the sodipodi directoy. That information came from the previous post. Windows error on load...

      "Copying all your dll dependencies to sodipodi program directory (and gtk+ lib, bin, etc and share directories as well) does solve... "

      After I did this the program opened. The windows installer does not work.
