CodeBlocks 2020.03 32bit, problem on Windows Vista
« on: April 04, 2020, 12:24:07 am »
I installed the latest 32bit (2020.3) release on an old computer running Windows Vista.
Installation proceeds smoothly, but the following message appears at CodeBlocks startup:
The Entry Point of the OpenProcess Procedure cannot be found in the dynamic link library:
api-ms-win-core-synch-l1-1-0.dll.
I've verified that the dll exists in the directory C:\Windows\system32.
Consequently, CodeBlocks doesn't start on my machine with Vista 32-bit.

Hello,
yes, because we need to get the old versions before 'svn11659' of 'cb-xxxx\src\exchndl\win32'. That's a dll and an exe.
I use these old files on 'Vista Business-32', I can't attach them, because the file limit is 512kb (it's 800kb!).
Have a nice day.
CB-rev12240, plugins : QtPregen-2.7.3-sdk240
1-Win7 Business Pack1 64bits : wx-3.1.4, gcc-8.1.0,
2-Vista Business Pack2 32bits : wx-3.1.4, gcc-8.1.0
3-OpenSuse-15.1-Leap 64bits : wx-3.03, gcc-7.5.

You need to recover (by Tortoise-svn) the svn11196 version of October 14, 2017 in which you will have the right files
http://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk/src/exchndl/win32
CB-rev12240, plugins : QtPregen-2.7.3-sdk240
1-Win7 Business Pack1 64bits : wx-3.1.4, gcc-8.1.0,
2-Vista Business Pack2 32bits : wx-3.1.4, gcc-8.1.0
3-OpenSuse-15.1-Leap 64bits : wx-3.03, gcc-7.5.

Well,
if you want to put these files with the executable 'Code::Blocks', you have to copy in the same directory as 'Codeblocks.exe' :
Code: [Select]
addr2line.exe, dbghelp.dll, exchndl.dll, mgwhelp.dll, symsrv.dll, symsrv.yes
CB-rev12240, plugins : QtPregen-2.7.3-sdk240
1-Win7 Business Pack1 64bits : wx-3.1.4, gcc-8.1.0,
2-Vista Business Pack2 32bits : wx-3.1.4, gcc-8.1.0
3-OpenSuse-15.1-Leap 64bits : wx-3.03, gcc-7.5.

I have the same problem on a Windows XP VM. But the answer seems unrelated to this DLL error.

I have the same problem and have recovered several related files to the specified subversion, but there are still problems with the compiler and debugger. What should I do?

What do you mean by problems with the compiler and debugger?

The names of the compiler and the debugger have changed, and the related settings need to be modified, but the debugger still has problems. You try it and you understand.

Yes, this is a known problem of the auto detection. :(

..., but the debugger still has problems.
What problems? I know about many problems, but you might be hitting something I don't know about :)

You try it and you understand.
I'm primary on Linux and the min Windows version I have is 7 64 bit.

I have the same problem with Code::Blocks 20.03 32 bit not starting on Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

After installing codeblocks-20.03-32bit-setup.exe when I try to start Code::Blocks I get this error:

codeblocks.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point OpenProcess could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-core-synch-l1-1-0.dll

I tried the things posted above by LETARTARE, but they did not work for me.

I uninstalled the 20.03 version and went back to the 17.12 version, that version works.

Have you tried to download the dlls and copy them over the dlls in the codeblocks installation?
