Have to click through 42 error messages each time Tribler starts


#1

The errors all have the format of:

tribler.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point xxx could not be located in the dynamic link library yyy

All reference dll’s under the VLC\plugins directory.

Tribler Version: 7.0.2
VLC Version: 2.2.6
OS: Windows 10


#2

This is likely caused by an incompatibility between the VLC that Tribler expects and the VLC installed on your system. We recently switched to bundling the required VLC libraries with the Tribler software so in the next release, we hope this is solved :slight_smile:


#3

Maybe you should check for existing VLC and not change peoples libraries? you’re not loading them in your folder, so they are causing some “dll hell” to happen


#4

In the upcoming release, we bundle VLC within our Tribler installer so we don’t touch/modify any system-installed VLC.


#5

If you have a Windows install, I will test.


#6

We will post a new experimental release tomorrow!
