Windows 10 app launch error - 'failed to load External: tsNet'

Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi

I have a GLX Framework based application that I am trying to create an installer for Windows 10 using Inno Setup as explained here.
https://revolution.screenstepslive.com/s/revolution/m/10695/l/563371-signing-installers-you-create-with-inno-setup

This is the second Windows installer I am making.  The first time I made an installer for my first version of this app on Windows ultimately worked (after a bit of trial and error) and now I am using the same basic script settings to make the new installer for an update to my application.

In the LiveCode standalone application settings dialog Windows tab I selected Windows 64 bit so it is a 64 bit application.

The folder layout of the application is as follows
myApp.exe
        ->Externals
                -mergJSON-x64.dll
                -revxml.dll
                -tsNet-x86_64.dll

Using Inno Script Studio I compile the script and that works with no problem.  
- I have a code signing certificate so the code is signed using the sign tool
- I looked at the “creating setup files message and I see that the external tsNet external is loaded.

Still when I try to launch my application I get a dialog titled ‘Initialization error’.  Its error message is ‘failed to load external: tsNet’

I thought it might be looking for the 32 bit version of the tsNet external, tsNet-x86.dll  so I added that to the Externals folder in addition to the 64 bit version that I already had before running the compiler again.   Same result.


I found a similar issue in the forums but the fix was to update to the stable version of LiveCode 9.5.0.

I am using LiveCode 9.6.0 so unless there has been a regression that should not be the issue.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Best regards,

Martin Koob
