trodas Posted December 17, 2013 Share Posted December 17, 2013 To be able submit the Aquamark score (pretty weird, since original Aquamark run well on my Win2k SP4) I had to replace Windows on my testing rig to Windows XP SP3. Now from that point on, I was under the firm impression, that everything will go smoothly. I was... wrong again. I downloaded the latest HWbot Aquamark (v2.53.108) edition install and installed it. With all the options (yes, including these libraries, that SHOUDL be included by default IMHO with the app, so install is not need...). Started it and got a message that the application cannot run, because it need MSVCP100.dll ...! And that DLL is not found. Searched whole C and D partitions and it is right! The DLL is just not there... Tried the M$ Visual C++ libs install 2010, but no go Weird. So I ended up downloading the need MSVCP100.dll and MSVCR100.dll from DLL files - check the latest versions under the "alternative files": http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcp100 http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcr100 ...and then Aquamark finally run. The machine info is almost non functional, so if THIS is the added benefit of HWbot edition, then we will be better w/o it... Sorry to say, that was just my experience DLLs to make the Aquamark work included. Somebody should look at this, when it does not work fresh WinXP SP3 install (yes, I disabled some services and WFP, but that it is, no more mods (yet) ), then it is IMHO disfunctional. Once again, old Aquamark worked just fine on Win2k SP4. I see no reason why it should require the slow WinXP... (and yes, WinXP SP3 is _TAD_ slower on Duron CPU by just moving the windows around, not mentioning the rest of the stuff) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
