echoscu.exe is asking for dcmtls.dll

#1 Post by JustSomeGuy » Thu, 2019-03-14, 19:24

I wanted to run an echo so I downloaded the latest dynamics binary distribution.
dcmtk-3.6.4-win64-dynamic.zip
(I wished for a static but the luck of the Irish wasn't with me.)

When I run echoscu a dialog pops up and asks for dcmtls.dll
I downloaded dcmtk-3.6.4-win64-dynamic-tls.zip with the hopes of finding dcmtls.dll but what I found was that it contained the dll but it also contained echoscu-tls.exe

So this just seems wrong to me...
I've never been asked for tls dlls before but I am now.

I believe that the build on https://dicom.offis.de/dcmtk.php.en may have been built with a wrong flag.
Can you point me to a static build or to a build that doesn't require a dll it isn't intended to use?

That seems strange. Release 3.6.4 was build using the same script we used for building 3.6.3, so, I would not expect a different behavior. We don't provide static libraries since they turned out awfully big since after the introduction of various new modules etc. The DCMTK without TLS might also have a stub dcmtks.dll that contains the symbols without an actual implementation, perhaps it is missing in the package (no idea how that might come to be though)?

I agree it's odd.. but more importantly i think it's wrong.
Is it within my power to fix this or should Offis be checking the build to see if there is an issue?

The file dcmtls.dll is part of the dcmtk-3.6.4-win64-dynamic.zip package -- I just re-checked that.

So, if it is there, it should also be found, right? As far as I know Windows always looks into the directory next to an executable for any required DLL, maybe this is now configurable on Windows 10 and you disabled it? Otherwise I have no idea how could come to observe this behavior.

This is at least true for my Windows 7 system.
