#1732 closed defect (wontfix)

kernel32.dll error in Windows 95

Reported by: SF/hal9042 Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Keywords: Cc:


Running scummvm.exe produces two errors:

[TITLE] path\scummvm.exe
(X) A device attached to the system is not functioning.

[TITLE] Error Starting Program
/!\ The SCUMMVM.EXE file is linked to missing export

This error occurs in Windows 95 for versions 0.6.1,
0.6.1b, and the latest build.

Version 0.6.0 works fine in Windows 95 and all versions
work in Windows 2000.

A Google search for
"KERNEL32.DLL:InterlockedCompareExchange" indicates
that several programs have this problem in Windows 95
and only work in Window 98 and later.

This is a new symbol needed by the newer SDL versions.
However, we don't support Windows 95, so there won't be a fix from us
for this.
If you are desperate to use it on Win95, you could try to find a windows
developer who compiles ScummVM 0.6.1b with an older version of SDL
for you, that might help.
Other than that, I can only recommend to update to at least Win98SE :-)
