you probably already have an older/newer version of this dll. The version number should be 0.9.8.4 and dated at 12/10/2007 (maybe it's still there even after the uninstall of ActivePerl?).
If this has a different version, copy this dll from a working installation and you probably need to register this dll (not sure about that) - can be done with regsvr32 /s libeay32.dll
thank you for your help.
I did have anothe version of that dll on my machine. It was in the system32 directory. I don't know why it was looking there before it looked in the activeState lib directories for that .dll.
after making sure it was using the correct .dll it worked thanks
I have just created a new server for use with VMWare Server 1.0.7 build-108231 and I get the error "the ordinal 3288 could not be located in hte dynamic link library LIBEAY32.dll"
I have installed VMWare on various systems over the past two years and this is the first time I have had this error. The server is a Dell PowerEdge 2950 with dual, Quad Core L5420 processors and 16Gb RAM. The operating system is Windows Server 2003 RC2 Enterprise Edition X64.
The only difference between this system and previous systems is that I am running x64 version of Windows (to take advantage of the 16Gb RAM). As far as I can see the PERL API is a 32 bit software, so I am wondering if this could be an issue.
When searching for LIBEAY32.dll I notice that the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\SysMgt\RACS also has a copy of this file. Also, after reading many posts the version that appears to be installed is 0.9.7.100 not the version described (0.9.8.1 from memory).
Any help would be great, or any recommendation as to how to backup the Virtual Machine without suspending and copying the files would also be appreciated as this is what I am currently using vmware-cmd for.
