[GNC] Fwd: no entry point found (windows 7) (Resolved)

GnuCash - User mailing list

Hi, thanks for the reply.  Found this, ( http://gnucash.1415818.n4.nabble.com/GNC-v3-1-error-td4700501.html)        an that solved my problem.   As quoted :Looks like the uninstall/install procedure in gnucash-3.1-2.setup.exe left the old 2.6 version of zlib1.dll in place. 

Try uninstalling GnuCash from Control Panel, then deleting C:\Program Files (x86)\gnucash from Windows Explorer, and reinstalling GnuCash 3.1.

Hi, have used 2.6 version, then tried to update to 3.3, an 3.4. But when try to open gnucash, I get the following;What do i need to do to get it to work?  This is on a laptop with windows 7 professional.thanks for the help  alan

 For those who didn't see the screenshot of the message, it says: 
"The procedure entry point InflateValidate could not be located in the dynamic link library zlib1.dll."

Did the installer remove the old version of GnuCash when you upgraded? Try uninstalling and then installing the new version. (Someone with more experience than I can weigh in on whether you should use an uninstall utility such as the free Revo Uninstaller.)
Also go to http://www.gnucash.org/ and follow the link on the home page and be sure you're installing a good copy of the official application. Occasionally files can get corrupted while downloading. Also if it came from an unofficial source it's possible someone modified it.
I rarely use Windows, so please be sure to reply to the list and let everyone know what worked (or not).
