Background: I was using Vim on Windows for some time now and wanted to
install the lua_omni plugin (so that I'd have lua syntax folding working).
After I've copied the files of the plugin to vim's directory and ran gVim,
gVim told me that it:
E370: Could not load library lua51.dll
I've searched for lua51.dll on Google and downloaded ~4KB file from
dllfiles.com. I've copied that file to %ProgramFiles%\vim\vim73 and
%windir%\system32. Vim was still complaining for the *.dll file. I've
tracked that the file that Vim was actually searching for was:
lua5.1.dll , and not:
lua51.dll (like the error message says)
After downloading lua5.1.dll - this time, not from dllfiles.com, but from
Lua's language website - copying the file to %programFiles%\Vim\vim73\
Please fix the filename in the error message / provide list of dirs for
which vim searches for the dll file in the error message if possible.
I'm using Vim 7.3.829.
