Where is SQLite3.dll

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm trying to get a script that uses SQLite to work, but it complains that it cannot load the dll file.  I downloaded the zip file containing the sqlite3.dll, but I don't know where to place it.  I found that the script works if I put in in C:\Windows\System32, but that's a protected directory. I tried putting it in C:\Users\Andy\AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\SQLite but that didn't work.  Is there a non-protected directory that I could put the dll in?

here is my test script:

#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>

_SQLite_Startup(@ScriptDir & "\" & "sqlite3.dll", false, 1) ;"\Config\sqlite3_x64.dll", False, 1)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, "SQLite Error", "SQLite3.dll Can't be Loaded! - " & $__g_hPrintCallback_SQLite & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Exiting application / Zavolej Honzovi")
    Exit -1

Maybe you refer to sqlite3.dll instead.

Just put it where you load it from: you invoke loading as

_SQLite_Startup(@ScriptDir & "\" & "sqlite3.dll", false, 1)

so @ScriptDir is a pretty good place.

Note that the help says that the DLL " can be stored in @ScriptDir, @SystemDir, @WindowsDir, or @WorkingDir. "
