Hi,

when I try to register the StarBurnX DLL on Win2000, RegSvr32 fails with exit code 0x3. Is it no longer compatible to Win2000 or does some specific runtime have to be installed before?

Regards,
Flo

I don't think we do as it's not supported by MS development tools for years. You can either skip using Win2K as supported system or keep two versions of StarBurn (one with less features for old version in legacy mode and other for post 2K/XP ones). We try to keep as much backward compatibility as possible but it's not easy...

Well, earlier versions of StarBurn still worked (I believe from last year or so), so did you make some specific changes that cause is not to work anymore? If you say that Win2000 is no longer supported, I can probably live with that, but if there are just some dependencies missing that could be added to my installer, I would rather do that.

We've changed compiler with V13 to the most recent one so that's the point.

It's not just dependencies these are API calls missing (mostly).

I'll talk to developers today what could be done here.

Hello,

Could you try to set DependsWalker utility on StarBurnX12.dll in order to identify missed dependencies!

Regards,

Dmitry

First it says

Quote:
---------------------------
Dependency Walker
---------------------------
Errors were detected when processing "c:\programme\cdburnerxp\STARBURNX12.DLL". See the log window for details.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------


Then the log window shows

Quote:
Error: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in an implicitly dependent module.


For the rest check this screenshot:

Plus some additional info from MSDN:

Quote:
If your using VC++ 2010 to build your application or Windows DLL the minimum supported OS that it will be able to run on is Windows XP SP2 even thought SDK supports targeting WIN2K it makes no difference when using platform toolset vc100.

The quick way to workaround this issue is to use VC++2008 and earlier. If you still want to use VC++2010 you can set the Platform Toolset to vc90. This allows you to support Windows 2000 or later.

That's what I've told you.

We'll try but it's very easy to break other things with "downgrade" option. So we'll try to release V13 AS IS (or we'll have to slow down it) and then we'll try to enable backward compatibility with Windows 2000 this way (have to re-run all the tests and it's quite a time).

So that is not feasible?

Hello,

Why not, we will change the "Platform Toolset" to vc90 ( a specially for you :) )

I will try to build the new StarBurnX build today!

Regards,

Dmitry

Is this absolutely critical issue or you can just wait for next update?

I can wait, if you keep me a bit updated about your schedule. I keep asking if I don't get any news for a couple of weeks ;)

We're done with SDK and finalizing StarBurnX wrapper. Then we'll have a release.

flöle,

If you continue using Windows 2000 then you should definitely try the unofficial kernel (http://bristols.zxq.net/windows2000/updates/#kb2393802). It adds many new APIs and also allows you to run applications compiled in VS 2010.
