[SOLVED]Can't find SQLite3.dll
« on: March 13, 2018, 01:11:34 pm »
Win 10. Lazarus 1.8.2 - I've put copies of SQLite3.dll in every damn directory I can think of that's possibly related, including Lazarus. Put it in both path files. As soon as I try and connect I get the error message "can't find SQLite3.dll, check your installation" or something very similar. Somewhere in the 1k pages of stuff I've looked at over the past several days I saw something about a 64/32 bit problem but I've been unable to find that since.  I was away from programming for 15 or more years. This is only the 2nd program I've worked on now, so please treat me like a newborn in your answers :-)

Thanks,
Steve

Don't do that  ;D

Put SQLite3.dll in your project directory. It needs to be the same bitness (32 or 64 bit) as your intended application.

additionally you can put a SQLite3.dll in your lazarus.exe directory. It also needs to be the same bitness as your lazarus.exe.

I THOUGHT they were both the 64 bit versions. Can I determine that without downloading and installing new copies of both?

You can open them in notepad and look for the PE characters (use wordwrap).

32 bit will have PE  L
64 bit will have PE  d†

But of course you can also download the 64 bit again so you are sure you've got the right one.

SOLVED Thanks rvk! You were 100% correct. Somehow, (don't ask, I have no idea) I had downloaded the 32 bit version of Lazarus. That is not what I had intended and I never noticed. All good now, and what a relief.
Thanks again!
