Could not find the REVCAP32.DLL

Using SRP utilities 2.1.11 and latest NSI files from SRP and latest NSIS.

(1) Create RDK in C:\RDK
(2) Modified SRP_Template_RDK.nsi (see below, these are the only changes I made)
(3) Copy my install of OI from C:\OI32 to C:\Test
(4) Compiled nsi file
(5) Run nsi exe file.

I get an error "Could not find the REVCAP32.DLL"

Any ideas anyone?

  • Just to check there is nothing amiss further on. This is working for me. (OI9)

  • The only differences I can see are:

    I use SRPRDKINSTALL not UPGRADE
    You reference oinsightexe I reference oinsight.exe
    I prompt for app, username, and password.
    I run RDKINSTALL and you run UPDATE_INDEX

    Any ideas anyone?
  • When do you get this error? During compilation or when running the installer?
  • Running the installer after the prompt for app, username.
  • Does the value in DEFAULT_OI_DIR point to a folder with both oinsight.exe and revcap32.dll in that folder directly, or is your OI app in a subfolder of C:\Test?
  • I tried doing it differently. I backed up my OI32 folder and tried installing directly to that folder to make sure it wasn't something do with copying the install, I see the same problem when using this folder.

  • It's hard for me to nail down the cause, but I can tell you why the error occurs. The current working directory is determined by the SetOutPath command in the script. This is set to whatever directory you select in the Directory screen. After you enter in your credentials, the "srputil" plugin tries to log into windows. This plugin uses REVCAP32.DLL, and windows relies on the current working directory to find that DLL, which it can't find for some reason.

    I'm not sure why you are getting this error. We know for sure that you are choosing a directory with oinsight.exe and oengine.dll because the script checks for those two files (see Function DirectoryLeave). Since oinsighte.exe cannot run without revcap32.dll, there's no reason the plugin couldn't do it unless there was some kind of anti-virus software preventing it.
  • I just did a search for revcap32 in the registry, it was not found, does this mean it needs registering?
  • Nope. Regsvr32 is not meant to be registered. Windows looks for DLL using a standard list of directories. It looks in the current directory, then System32, then any directories in the environment's PATH variable.
  • Hmm then somehow current directory must be wrong.
  • The only way to find out is to debug the script, and the only way to debug NSIS is to place MessageBox statements in our code to display values. In this case, you want to examine the $OUTDIR variable.
  • ; attempt to login
    MessageBox MB_OK "$INSTDIR"
    SetOutPath $INSTDIR
    srputil::startOI /NOUNLOAD $OI_APP $OI_USERNAME $OI_PASSWORD

    Message displayed is c:\OI32 which is correct and adding SetOutPath line makes no difference.
  • I don't think I have an answer for you. The DLL is there but Windows isn't finding it. (BTW, that error message is not coming from NSIS or the SRPUTIL plugin. That is Windows). My only guess is that something is preventing the installer from seeing it. Perhaps see if the installer gets the same error in another environment? I could test it on my end if you send me a dropbox link or something.
  • Good idea, let me test on another machine.
  • Wow. Good catch. I bet that is exactly the issue. I was not aware NSIS added that.
  • Not sure if this helps but if I add a MessageBox right after loading of the engine and use sysinternals Procexp.exe, no OENGINE is loaded.

    ; attempt to login
    srputil::startOI /NOUNLOAD $OI_APP $OI_USERNAME $OI_PASSWORD
    MessageBox MB_OK "Test1"
  • That's not surprising because REVCAP32.DLL is supposed to load the engine, and the DLL can't be found. I'm almost certain you need to use the solution in the above stack overflow link.
  • This fixes it:

    Function DirectoryLeave

    ; look for oinsight.exe
    ${IfNot} ${FileExists} "$INSTDIR\oinsight.exe"
    ${OrIfNot} ${FileExists} "$INSTDIR\oengine.dll"
    MessageBox MB_OK|MB_ICONEXCLAMATION "Could not find oinsight.exe or oengine.dll in $INSTDIR.$\r$\n$\r$\nPlease select another location."
    Abort
    ${EndIf}

    System::Call 'KERNEL32::AddDllDirectory(w "$INSTDIR")'

    ; add oinsight.exe, oengine.exe, and this installer to the Windows Firewall exception list to avoid annoying popups
    srputil::addFirewallException /NOUNLOAD "$EXEPATH" "${PRODUCT_NAME} Installer"
    srputil::addFirewallException /NOUNLOAD "$INSTDIR\oinsight.exe" "$INSTDIR\oinsight.exe"
    srputil::addFirewallException /NOUNLOAD "$INSTDIR\oengine.exe" "$INSTDIR\oengine.exe"

    ; set the directory as the new install location
    SetOutPath $INSTDIR

    FunctionEnd
  • I learned something new today. Thanks.
  • You are welcome, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
