dll missing
Hi all,

I've just installed the latest release (october) of the engine.
I don't know if it could be related, but I have the following problem:
After compiling for DirectX 10+, I get a system error when I try to run the compiled application:
   
When compiling for DirectX9, there seems to be no problem.
I am running windows 7 SP1 64 bit and have visual studio community 2015 and DirectX 11 installed.

I thought there could be something wrong with the DirectX installation, however I am still able to run high-end games like shadow of mordor..

Any ideas, or anyone that had this issue before?

Hi.

Could you try installing directx runtime?

Hi smile When I try this, the setup completes with mentioning that a newer or equivalent version of DirectX has been installed already and no installation is necessary.
I also just installed the redistributable version of directx ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/...px?id=8109 ) and restarted my PC, but the problem is still there...

That's weird.

I did a search for that file on my computer, and it turned up in several places.
You can extract this archive into your Windows Folder.
I copied the DLL's from my laptop.
(edit: please use DLL's from the link below)

Thanks, but no luck :( The weird thing is that I also did a search and it also turned up several times. I guess there is something wrong with my DirectX installation.
I will upgrade to windows 10 tomorrow, that should certainly solve the issue..

RE: dll missing
I just got myself Windows 7 desktop, and the same error happens when running DX10+ in Debug mode.
These DLL's should fix it (they are different than what I've posted before)

I also sometimes had this problem when I opened my project in Visual studio (F8), and then I try to run from Esenthel Editor.
Closing visual studio + Esenthel and restarting Esenthel always solved it for me.

RE: dll missing
this occurs only in Debug mode, as Release will remove unused code references to shader compilation

RE: dll missing
Thanks! grin It works now. It is only now that I see I had "debug" mode selected instead of "release".
I notice that when I reinstall esenthel engine with the latest release, the flag in the settings is set to "debug" mode by default wink

Hi,

You can also try copying the DLL's from my link to Windows (it's a different link / DLL files than before). That should work too, as it helped in my case.

RE: dll missing
Hi, I tried it, the files indeed solved the issue for the debug mode in win7 smile, so both modes are working now. (didn't upgrade to Windows 10 yet since I ordered a SSD drive first)
