Description

Hi am am getting a missing MSVCR71.dll error when starting grass-6.4.1-1 on my Windows 7 PC. It also said Pyton error in the top of the error dialogue, so I am not sure if this is a python problem or a Grass problem.

I installed WinGRass-6.4.1-1-setup.exe

you are missing a Microsoft support library. (usually this only happens on a new PC, as many softwares provide it)

you'll need to download MSVCR71.dll from the net and install it:

maybe it is python that requires this dll but does not ship it?

see #1450's comment 7, downloads for missing libraries now provided on the WinGRASS Wiki page's troubleshooting section:

http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/WinGRASS_Current_Status#Windows7

not sure if we (grass) can do much about it, the dependency seems to come from the osgeo4w stack.(??)

please re-open the ticket if you find a better packaging solution.
