Tao Framework .dll import problem

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi, I have a problem with importing a .dll file to my project. I’m using Tao Framework on a Windows Vista OS but when I try to load the file I get the following error:


Unable to load ‘SDL.dll’: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

If anyone has already successfully resolved this kind of a problem I would greatly appreciate any advice.

Thanks very much in advance.

When you installed the Tao Framework, either by downloading it or from other source, the sdl.dll file was either:

1-      Not downloaded with the package and not installed

2-      Or the file is installed in some other folder

In order to correct this issue, you simply need to download the sdl.dll file again.

The download link is: https://www.dll-files.com/sdl.dll.html

After downloading the zip file and saving it to your desktop etc, simply extract the file to the correct folder where you have actually installed the program.

Do Re-Start your computer.

Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

Tao Framework .dll import problem



This error is directly associated with native files (.dll or .lib) as the managed dll not in the required path. In order to get rid of this issue, you must have to find that which specific dll files are associated with your application. Follow these steps and your issue will be resolved,

Solution 1: Download and install the Tao Framework and then extract the SDL.dll and other dll files from its root folder and copy them in My Program directory.

Solution 2: Separately install “msvcr71.dll” from official dll website as it is not included in .Net Framework.
