observation: middleware use, and msvcr100.dll

Post by erickengelke »

Hi,

I followed React many years ago, but got sidetracked with other projects.

Today I started looking at it for hosting Win32 compatible database application servers.

It is common to write Win32/Win64 applications which do middleware between web clients and real database servers (like MySQL), an alternative to using JavaVMs which have all the downfalls of Java.

I have written a large number of such servers, and published a few books on the subject. I was trying to port my code to Linux to avoid MS licensing hell but that would interfere with so many 3rd party libraries, I kind of need Windows compatibility, then got the idea to try it with ReactOS. I was delighted to see that much code worked out of the box. Y'all have done a great job, excellent progress.

But the problem I ran into, and I see others have too, is DLLs compiled with MSVC are often dependant on MSVCR100 runtime dll. WHile I am using Delphi myself and wouldn't normally have the problem, many 3rd party open source utilities i need to load do have the MSVCR100.DLL dependancy, and I don't think there is any way to install it. A quick web search showed nobody having success.

Likely you would need to emulate or produce your own MSVCR100 dll. I don't know how hard that is, I don't have MS Visual Studio, so I don't know much more about it. I'm an old time programmer and would be willing to help, but would like to know if anyone has started on it.

1. Run RAPPS (ReactOS Applications Manager)
2. Enter msvcr100 in the search box
3. Download the dependencies using it

Everything is simple, no need to create another one.

And please do not even consider using ReactOS on a production server in its current state of development.
