Description of problem:
I installed the virt-viewer-x64-7.0.msi Windows Installer Database after verifying the supplied signature.
It was a bit surprising to get no desktop or start menu entry, but after consulting the log file, I noticed where it had been installed and headed there.
Starting any of the following executables gave me an error that libdl.dll could not be found on my system. I searched the whole C: drive for it and came up empty as well.
The following program failed an assertion and showed a WER dialog:
* windows-cmdline-wrapper.exe (windows-cmd-wrapper.c:63)
The following other programs also complained about missing libraries:
* orc-bugreport.exe -> liborc-test-0.4-0.dll (file not found on C:)
* pango-view.exe -> libharfbuzz-0.dll (file not found on C:)
* gspawn-win64-helper.exe showed a WER dialog
* gspawn-win64-helper-console.exe showed a WER dialog (failed assertion in gspawn-win32-helper.c:208)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.0, I'd guess?!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on a fully patched Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
2. Attempt to run any of the programs
3. Observe symptoms
Errors as detailed in the description above.
Running programs :)
Ask me! At this point I am not sure what more information might be relevant.
remote-viewer.exe did not cause an issue, so I am hoping that's the component I am looking for (the viewer for remotely running KVM guests).
Yep, remote-viewer.exe was the component I was after and it works like a charm through an SSH tunnel. So the issue is a non-issue for me, but I hope it will help you to improve the software.
I am also having this issue. Windows 7, virt-viewer version 7.0-256.
The msitools package is shipping outdated / broken content causing the generated installers to be broken.
Fixed the msitools data upstream, so next virt-viewer windows builds should address the problems on this bug https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/msitools/commit/db240b28808247efa92a0c240a737c18d300fdde
The new 8.0 release should address all missing DLLs.
