Image Search RE-Born!

9 posts in this topic

Hey!

I've been fighting with the _imagesearch function for the past 3 days.

Tried all the scripts and dll versions i could put my hands around (lots!!) BUT every single time i try to execyte the script  it fails on the library func:

To be true i really need this but i am getting REALLY frustated!

any hand on this would be much apreciated. Best regards

You should check for @error being 0 or not from the DLLCall before trying to use the array, because if DLLCall fails to access the file, it will set @error to something other than 0. Also, is the DLL in the same folder as the script, and have you tried accessing it with the full path?

Can you please stop posting screenshots of your code? Just post the code, it makes things much easier for everyone, including you, to see what is being done.

Where is the DLL file when you run your script? Are you running this script as a 64bit process, or x86?

BTW, >this post explains that exact same problem, easily found by using search.

i did read all thats topic from top to bottom, as many others (above 20)...

I dont like to create topics just cause i am lazy, i did read plenty

Couldnt find a solution for the win7 32bit sistem where i need to run the script.

As for the Dll, plz check above, its atached to the previous post.

 

Even knowing how to use the search function, sometimes a line escapes us all. Best regards

I asked you where you had the dll file saved on your computer when you run the script, not where a copy could be located. Try changing that DLLCall to use the full path and file name of the dll instead of just the file name like it is now.

Just in case i putted it on all related folders. Seems its working!

I tought it would take the aux script dir. That detail didnt came into my mind... stupid me.

Or maybe i pasted over a newer version, dunno, was getting tired and without patience.

 

A big thank you, thumbs up!

(so obvious now i look at it, shame on me)
