• SynchTERM on Windows 2000

    From Limawhiskey@VERT/CHOICE to All on Wed Dec 7 13:20:14 2022
    Question for those using SyncTERM,

    I have an older Windows 2000 machine that I want to run SyncTERM on. Is there a specific distro I need to be compatible? The version I have gotten from the website as well as the binary file gives me the following error on install.
    ________________________________________________________________
    l Synterm.exe-Entry Point Not Found X l
    l----------------------------------------------------------------l l l
    l The procedure entry point _difftime64 could not be located l
    l In the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll I
    l________________________________________________________________l

    Is this someting as simple as finding a 32 bit version?

    Thanks in advance,

    No, this is just a limitation in the current beta (XP not supported). There's already an issue filed on the SyncTERM issue list at
    sf.net. Use the latest release (v1.1) and I think you'll be fine on XP.

    Rob,

    Thank you for the answer. Great to hear from the man himself. I have a bootable Windows XP partition on that same drive. I will give it a go and see what I can do.

    Have a good morning!
