DLL Loading Error: Relap5l.dll

» We have a program that uses a dll created with IFC. It works fine on our computers, XP and Win 7. We have some clients over seas that are encountering a problem with the dll. THey are getting an error message: DLL Loading Error: relap5l.dll. The next thing they are asked to do is click OK. The dll is in the same folder as the exe file.

» A DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is a grouping of files that include both data and executables that are able to be used by one or more programs at the same time. The use of DLLs promotes code reuse by Windows applications developers and more efficient use of memory on computers running the Windows operating system (OS).

Dynamic Link Library files or DLLs are libraries of computer code and data that are used as shared resources on computers. A common task that arises for home computer users is figuring out how to register a DLL to allow the desired computer software to operate properly. Through the use of DLLs, program development is able to be modularized into separate components or modules enabling a faster load time of programs when these modules are loaded as the functionality is required. The use of DLLs also allows separate program modules to be updated without having to completely install new versions of programs saving time and bandwidth for consumers.

Sometimes when a program fails to load, it will display an error message such as the ordinal 0×876 could not be located in the dynamic-link library xyz.dll or you install a new application and some other programs stop working correctly. This is usually the result of a new DLL that is not backward compatible with older versions of the same dynamic link library. This usually happens because the programmer did not sufficiently test the new DLL to make sure it would support all of the functions of the earlier version.

And the dll file problems can be caused by viruses/Trojan(Trojan:Win32/Rulxy.A) or malware. You may receive the error message "Relap5l.dll is missing or not found". In this case, you need to remove the viruses and then the infection, DLL Suite would be the best choice for you. It is invented to fix various kinds of dll file issues including the .exe and .sys files. It allows to free download any kind of missing dll files.

  2. WILLIAM BRIGGS replied on March 7, 2013: » They are getting the error on Windows 7 and XP. The dll is just a dummy file used for licensing purposes. It stays in the same directory as the exe file.

  3. SHIRLEY BROWN replied on March 9, 2013: » tell them to download Dependency Walker, open the exe with Dependency Walker and start the profiling. Now they should copy the output into a text file and give it to you. You upload the file to your SkyDrive and share the link here.

  4. ERIK JOHNSON replied on March 11, 2013: » That error message would appear to be coming from the application. I would guess that the application tries to dynamically load this DLL using LoadLibrary and it fails. It is not coming from Intel Fortran itself. The DLL being loaded may have dependencies on other DLLs that are not present on some systems. UseDependency Walker to check.

  5. JOHN TZIKAS replied on March 12, 2013: » I think it means that, when you specify to build a DLL, you can choose the option to satisfy all external dependencies by linking to the static library versions rather than the DLL versions. That way all external dependency code should become part of your DLL (which will of course be bigger as a consequence) and the DLL will not then need to link in other DLL's in order to load the code for the external dependencies.

    This presupposes that there exist static versions of all of the DLLs on which your Fortran code depends.
