FAQ #7: Warning: no data dictionary loaded, check environment variable: DCMDICTPATH

#1 Post by Marco Eichelberg » Thu, 2004-11-04, 18:18

:?: All of the programs print the message
Warning: no data dictionary loaded, check environment variable: DCMDICTPATH
then seem to produce strange results.

:!: The DICOM data dictionary could not be loaded. It has probably not been properly installed. The default location for this file (under Unix) is "/usr/local/dicom/lib/dicom.dic" but an alternive location can be specified by using the DCMDICTPATH environment variable. See the documentation file "dcmtk/dcmdata/doc/datadict.txt" for more details about using DICOM data dictionaries.
