Importing Geotiff files

Pari
  Hi.
When I want to import Geotiff files in ILWIS 3.8.4, I face this starnge problem that the import menu doesn't have any options to select from! It looks like this picture:


I know it must have the followng options to choose from: ILWIS/ GDAL/ Postgres/Aster/ActiveXdata objects/OGC

But mine only has the first option (e.g ILWIS), and I cant choose my Geotiff file from the GDAL option.
I have actually worked with this option couple of months ago and I had no problem, but now suddenly they are gone!!

I appreciate any help from you. Tanx

Hi!

This happens when a file named "msvcr71.dll" is missing from the C:\Windows\System32 folder, which is required by the PostgreSQL component that we are using (libpq.dll), which in turn is a prerequisite to build up this part of the menu.
You may have had this file in the past, but miss it now, because of a fresh-install of Windows, or an upgrade, or software-uninstall.

Solution:
I have attached the missing DLL file in a ZIP. You can unzip and copy it inside your ILWIS folder (it does not need to be in C:\Windows\System32). You will find other similarly named files in the ILWIS folder: "msvcp90.dll", "msvcr90.dll".
In the future we will include the "msvcr71.dll" file when distributing ILWIS.

Cheers,
