can't find dll "globalvariables.dll"

Postby alko » 07 Feb 2017

H all,

I cannot get two models - master and slave - work in Portfolio Trader for a backtest with global variables. I get Message: can't find dll "globalvariables.dll". I tried to specify full path but it also failed (file is definitely there). I tried the following initiation variations for globalvariables.dll:

DefineDLLFunc: "GlobalVariable.dll", int, "GV_GetInteger", int ;

DefineDLLFunc: "C:\Program Files\TS Support\MultiCharts64\GlobalVariable.dll", int, "GV_GetInteger", int ;

EXTERNAL: "C:\Program Files\TS Support\MultiCharts64\GlobalVariable.dll", int, "GV_GetInteger", int ;

How come it does not see the file? Thank you

Yes

Probably you installed the 32 bit version of Globalvariable.

no, definitely 64bit, saw that thread before installed them. Any way to fix this?

to clarify - the strategies compile fine, but the error occurs when running them

Nope... there are no 64 bit GlobalVariables available for download anywhere.

I have reinstalled original Globalvariable.dll. It now seems to work. Possibly it was indeed 32 bit. Thank you
