I had glade up and running in windows vista 64-bit but now that I upgraded my workstation to windows 7 64-bit glade does not come up.

I know that the current version is only tested on XP and Vista. I was just wondering if someone has been able to run on their win 7 os.

The Windows version is currently supported on 32 bit, not 64. Sorry.

Thanks for the clarification. Are there any plans for 64-bit support? Isn't the majority of Windows 7 users on 64-bit versions. Particular the IC design community?

In theory this should be possible as VC++ supports cross-compilation to x64. I don't have a 64 bit windows platform to test on, though.

I am more than happy to test it if you can provide the build.

I will take a look. It will require building a 64 bit version of Qt, as Trolltech don't ship a prebuilt 64 bit version as far as I'm aware.

After a few false starts the Qt library is building using the VC2008 cross compiler... so it looks possible.

OK I may need some help to get this thing linked - Glade needs the ActiveState python library for the linker. However, the 64 bit version uses the 64 bit Windows Installer, which of course won't run on a 32 bit machine...

If you can download the 64 bit version of python (which you will want anyhow), unpack it and send me the following files (zipped):

python26.lib
python26.dll

then I should be able to build the 64 bit executable.

I cannot find the DLL in the version 2.6.5 install. I have attached the compressed install folder and the LIB file. I hope that resolves the problem, else let me know.

Hi, it doesn't look like the attachment worked. How big is the file - can you email it? Send to support@peardrop.co.uk, thanks.

Edit: I have changed the limit for attachment file sizes - it was 200Kb only before.

For the python26.dll, try looking in C:\windows\system32 (or the equivalent for 64 bit windows).

Just a short note that Glade is now developed and tested on Windows 7, 64 bit version.

It's also occasionally tested on Windows XP (but not the 64 bit version).

Porting to other platforms is done using VMware Workstation.

Hi Keith,

I tried to install glade on Windows 7 64bit machine but I'm getting the following error.
Initially it asked for some missing dll files which we added to relevant system folders after which its giving us the error as
"The application was unable to start correctly(0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application"

Thanks,
Riyaz

The build for Windows has been updated to the latest v141 C runtime libraries. Please run the vcredist executable to install them.
