    Error Message

    Hey guys,

    I downloaded the latest version of freeship(3.11) from the website. But I get an error message showing that "fortlib.dll was not found". Please help me rectifying it.

    Cheers to the Freeship team....

    If it is update file, you need install full v3.1+ first...

    Victor, Any chance the updates can get integrated into the last relevant full version rather than saved as a separate folder?

    No problem. Copy full 3.1 version into new folder and unpack update archive there.
    You can have two difference programs 3.1+ and 3.11+ after this.

    Manie,

    Are the ones you need not at http://freeship-plus.land.ru/downloadsE.html ?

    The fortlib.dll that you seem to be missing is attached, zipped- it should be uncompressed and then put in the same directory as freeship.exe

    Having done that, it works fine on my Win7 unit.... you could also try running it in XP SP3 compatibility mode if it still acts up. (Right click freeship.exe, go to Compatibility tab, select XP SP3)

    dear manie

    Please download the 3.10 version of the software. this is a full version of the software whereas 3.11 is an add-on to the software. So follow this -
    - download the freeship 3.10 version from the website and save it in a folder.
    - now download the freeship 3.11 version and copy-paste all the files to the folder where the previous version has been stored.
    - now you are done with the complete download and it must work.
    - Enjoy, and don't forget to thank those people who work for these excellent freeware software

    I can see you have downloaded the full version. Now please extract all these in the zipfolder to a folder. Then try, it must work.

    Manie, you are not trying to make it work form a zipped file, are you? you need to unzip it first in a folder, usually the "C:\program files" directory in your PC. Then you can start the freeship.exe .

    Finally got it working
    BUT - still cant figure out why i had problems
    I finally uninstalled all winzip and all freeship and started over completely fresh

    Firstly i installed the new WinAce Archiver v2.39 to a file
    then i installed the 4th=last option of the 4 that you can choose from Freeship 3.1 also to a file
    just followed the prompts and one shot easy

    please keep in mind that i am not a newcomer to Freeship 3.1, I have had it on my PC for a couple of years and even still have the old 2.86? version as well. The new 3.1 works exceptionall well for me because it can develop plates, my micro and the 8m cat were developed on freeship.

    Anyway guys thanks for the support
    keep up the good work
    many thanks
