Hi John,

your effort is appreciated!

I will be ready to test ... at least with re for win-7-64.
Just let me know when and where to download ...

Let me iterate once again what is the problem.

After installing the program it does not start. Instead a smal windows pops up saying that the "ScriptIsComplex"-Routine has no entry point in GDI32.DLL. (GDI32.dll is an important system library since ever for all windows versions.)

I then searched the internet for this "ScriptIsComplex"-Routine and what it does. I found information for it at Microsofts website.


Just a little bit down there MS states:
Important  Starting with Windows 8: To maintain the ability to run on Windows 7, a module that uses Uniscribe must specify Usp10.lib before gdi32.lib in its library list.

I hope a programmer knows to translate this into something meaningful.

To me this gives a hint where the problem might be, because it relates to the error-message showing up at starting pspp that the entry point for "ScriptIsComplex" is missing in GDI32.dll. Maybe the solution is just a matter of placing "usp10.lib" before "gdi32.lib" in - to be determined - some module's library list.

I hope for the best

Best regards,
