Description

Trying to use grass 6.4.0-svn3 from osgeo4w using Windows Vista, I get the following error message:

"The application has failed to start because libintl-8.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

Are there known workarounds?

Is there a package from which I could install missing file.

Best regards,

libintl-8.dll is in the grass package. You should have it in %OSGEO4W_ROOT%/bin

I can find the file where you point in.

When I launch v.patch, I get an "User Account Control" Windows (Security alert). I don't know if this could be related to my problem.

I'm exploring potential cause.

Disabling User Account Control make v.patch work.

Is it an acceptable fix?

r.patch and v.patch do not work on 32bit Vista: apparently Windows's security measures think that "patch" is a dangerous word. (see bug https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/759).

assuming that the libintl-8.dll problem was also resolved, then yes.
