Vomp for Windows - 2.5-1 installation notes
« on: December 07, 2006, 03:49:55 »
Hi all,


(thanks to chris and martenr for vomp - it rocks)

For what it's worth, I was missing a few things that might save others some trouble.

I did not have directx on this machine (xp-sp2, current updates), so googled and got the redistributables from Microsoft at:

  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/ - search for directx, i got the aug2006 redists and installed

I also did not have the msvcr71.dll - looks like a visual-c runtime dll - googled and got it at:

  http://www.driverskit.net/dll/get/2373.html - put in same folder as the vompclient.exe

Nor did I have the msvcp71.dll - also probably related to visual-c - also got it at:

  http://www.driverskit.net/dll/get/2371.html - also works if in the same folder as the vompclient.exe

your mileage may vary, but PLEASE check ALL downloads for viruses! Don't trust anything out there... I also cannot guarantee that having these MSV* DLLs is legit without the visual-c environment, so I'm willing to remove them if they ask me to.

Now I get the VOMP interface (nice!) and radio works (yay!), along with keyboard commands, etc. My mpeg2 decoder is from the cyberDVD 4.0 and (as advertised) doesn't work, so I'm digging for a newer copy. so close!

 ;D


cheers,

thanks for clarifying these gotchas.

also a BIG thank you to Chris, Mark, Marten, [...]
for the windoze client!

don't get to try it out anytime soon though (still using 0.2.4 with that
superb WOL patch by pompase).

cheers
Harry

Coupla Quick Updates from here...

(BTW - thanks to the rest of the vomp contributors too - it's too easy to forget the rest of the mob)

Be sure and activate your Power DVD version, if required. (don't laugh... You didn't have to do that to get the decoders to work in previous versions    ;D  )

add to the keyboard commands "Alt-Enter -> full screen"

PowerDVD 7, vompclient.exe 2.5-1, xp-sp2 w/updates, dx9aug2006 .. werks fer me.
