    makesis plugin

    Hi

    CodeWarrior recently developed an error with the makesisplugin_pl.dll plugin, specifically if I try to use the "symbian Installer" post-linker I get an "Operating System error 2: The system cannot find the file specified". Existing projects that use the post-linker won't open unless I take the makesisplugin_pl.dll out of the plugins directory.

    The Plug-In Diagnostic Info mentions the following:
    ***** Start loading file: makesisplugin_pl.dll
    The plug-in flags are set by entry point 'CWPlugin_GetDropInFlags'.
    This plug-in does not support the plug-in information entry point 'CWPlugin_GetPluginInfo'.
    Note: The name for this plug-in is set by entry point 'CWPlugin_GetDropInName'. The name should be set using the plug-in information entry point 'CWPlugin_GetPluginInfo'.
    Note: The display name for this plug-in is set by entry point 'CWPlugin_GetDisplayName'. The display name should be set using the plug-in information entry point 'CWPlugin_GetPluginInfo'.
    The version information for this plug-in is from the DLL VERSIONINFO.
    Note: File 'makesisplugin_pl.dll' is a plug-in with the same display name (Symbian Installer) as one already loaded.
    The conflicting plug-in is from file 'C:\Program Files\Metrowerks\CodeWarrior for Symbian Personal v2.8.3\Bin\Plugins\Compiler\makesisplugin.dll'
    The panel list for this plug-in is set by entry point 'CWPlugin_GetPanelList'.

    Plug-in name: Symbian Installer Post-linker
    Plug-in type: Linker
    Filename: makesisplugin_pl.dll
    Display name: Symbian Installer
    Plug-in version: 1.1 (1.1)
    Plug-in API version: 13
    DropInFlags version: 2
    DropInFlags flags: 0x40000000 (isPostLinker)
    Help filename:

    This plug-in has 3 associated preference panels:
    Symbian Installation
    Symbian Tools
    Symbian Target

    And additionally, using FileMon I can see the following failures:
    IDE.exe:2152 QUERY INFORMATION C:\PROGRAM FILES\METROWERKS\CODEWARRIOR FOR SYMBIAN PERSONAL V2.8.3\BIN\PLUGINS\LINKER\RESOURCE.FRK\makesisplugin_pl.dll PATH NOT FOUND Attributes: Error
    IDE.exe:2152 QUERY INFORMATION C:\Program Files\Metrowerks\CodeWarrior for Symbian Personal v2.8.3\Bin\Plugins\Linker\makesisplugin_pl.dll:AFP_Resource NOT FOUND Attributes: Error

    I have reinstalled CodeWarrior without any success, does anyopne have any suggestions about other things I can try?

    Re: makesis plugin

    Does this file actually exist? :

    LINKER\RESOURCE.FRK\makesisplugin_pl.dll

    (It almost looks like you copied your installation from a Mac and then put it on windows!)

    I've never seen such an error before. Make sure you don't acutally have two versions of the same DLL in your installation. Also:

    What version of CW do you have?
    Did you install any Symbian SDK/DevKit _after_ CW installation?
    What is the linker setting in the Target Settings pref?

    Re: makesis plugin

    No, the file mentioned doesn't exist.

    The error occured after I moved from a workgroup to a domain login on my pc (which required me copying my profile to a new one, and adjusting the ownership of a lot of files). After things didn't work correctly I did an uninstall/reinstall, so the SDKs were already installed before CW in that case. The linker setting is "Symbian Linker".

    CodeWarrior v2.8.3
    UIQ_21 SDK
    Series60_v12 SDK

    I agree that it appears to be trying to read a resource fork(?) from the file. My understanding is that NTFS supports alternative data streams, however I have run the scanADS tool over all the CW files and it reported no additional streams.

    Re: makesis plugin

    In the \bin folder of the installation, run 'regservers.bat'. The restart the IDE. If that fails, then I suppose you can just disable the post-linker in the Target Settings pref if you don't have a PKG file in your project just yet. This is a wierd one.
