Dll Troubles

Hi all....does anyone know what this is all about?
When I start PS CS and the "loading" window appears I get a message over the top of the program, saying "application failed to start cxcore097.dll not found re-installing may fix the problem" I have re-installed with no joy, I have uninstalled and re-installed again, and still no joy.
When I click on OK Photoshop loads up and seems to run with no faults.
I have done a search on Google but could find nothing to do with PS and the dll file.
I have also searched MS Windows help and Support site with no joy.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
John
PS I'm running windows xp home with sp2 installed.

Re: Dll Troubles

i'm not familiar with that file either, but based on a similar recent post from someone else, have you checked your plugins? it may be that a plugin is looking for this .dll.

failing that, you could also try the adobe sites.

Re: Dll Troubles

Craig is right. Check the plugins that you added to Photoshop.

This is not a file used natively by Photoshop. It is part of the Open source Computer Vision project (OpenCV). It's most likely being used by one of the plugins you added. Photoshop loads the plugins at startup and you can get error messages if something is missing that the plugin needs to initialize. That usually affects just that plugin.

Craig....thanks for the reply, I forgot to mention I've already searched Adobe site with no results, but I will try the pluggins now, thanks for the thought.
John
edit...Bob looks like we posted together, lol. A question, if the file is missing, how the hell do I find it??

Re: Dll Troubles

hi,
I would suggest just do a search on the system to make sure it's missing.. or what folder it's actually in.

Now on my system(basically same as yours) .. the cxcore097.dll is in my system 32 folder...

Now i looked at the file itself.. it actually a file that belongs to Intell it some sort open source vision library... and is used in other programs from what i can see.

If the file is not in your system... then suggest either copy the file from another system and put it in.

another possibility and that is if the file is in the place it suppose to be and that is use a restore point that predates the problem. although that result in other issues since you already reinstalled the software

Re: Dll Troubles

Hi John

cxcore097.dll is part of the OpenCV Library. It should be located in Your C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ folder

If it is not there you could try re-installing OpenCV

Open Source Computer Vision Library
You can read about it here

http://www.intel.com/technology/comp...v/overview.htm

I think Matlab also uses these libraries.

Hope this helps.

Ken.

Re: Dll Troubles

Just out of curiosity I download GML Matting again and installed it as a ps pluggin, used it once ok then tried again and it killed Photoshop! had to re-boot pc to get it to work again. I think I'll leave GML well alone.

You could post a link to this thread in the GML thread

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sof...al-plugin.html

I’m sure Mikhail would be interested in this and would probably have a solution

Ken.
