Tech Note - LIBEAY32.dll Is Missing

From OpenUru
Jump to: navigation, search

This Tech Note applies to:

CyanWorlds.com Engine (Client)

Revision:

v1.902

Additional Notes:
LIBEAY32.dll is deleted from the installation folder after an update failure occurs (OpenSSL dynamically linked in UruLauncher.exe)

Problem Description

When a client update fails, the dependency file "LIBEAY32.dll" is deleted or corrupted. This file can be normally be found in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Uru Live
— on 64bit versions of Windows
and
C:\Program Files\Uru Live
— on 32bit versions.

If the client build uses this DLL for the launcher (instead of statically linking the OpenSSL library) then the launcher will be unable to run.

Resolution

To fix this problem, you will need to obtain a fresh copy of the dll from your CWE client download/installation package and place it into your installation folder; it may be simplest to re-run the client installer. Do not use a version obtained from any other source as the version may not match your client and may cause further problems with the launcher.
