I'm running windowsXP professional with service pack 1 and i get the following error when trying to start up gaim. I installed gaim-0.60-encrypt-1.17.exe and GTK+-Runtime-Environment-188.8.131.52.exe:
"The procedure entry point gzclose could not be located in the dynamic link library zlib.dll"
I then uninstalled gaim and tried again. Same error.
So then i installed the previous version of gaim-encryption and that seemed to work fine. I was able to sign on and chat all i wanted. But then when I came to write this up, i installed the new version again, trying to recreate the error message. I did not install the previous version, i just let it overwrite the necessary files. To my amazement, the new version worked being installed on top of the old version. I then uninstalled the program and installed it clean again, and was able to re-create the error.
I hope this isn't too difficult to follow. In conclusion, the new version 0.60 failed to run. But upgrading from the previous version worked.
Should be ok in the latest release- I re-added the zlib.dll plugin to the installer.
