Is it still necessary to release salflibc.dll together with an ftn95 executable? It seems that with ftn95 version 8.62 (may be even by earlier versions) this dll is no longer needed. Am I right or do I overlook something? KL

I do not know how you reached this conclusion, which is incorrect. Depending on whether the EXE is 32-bit or 64-bit, the PC on which the EXE is run will need SALFLIBC.DLL or SALFLIBC64.DLL. Depending on which RTL functions are used, it may also need CLEARWIN64.DLL.

You can test this for yourself by opening a command window without running FVARS.BAT, and entering the command

where salflibc.dll

You will probably receive a message that the DLL could not be found.

If the DLL is found, it may be attributable to the installation of some other software package such as NAG Fortran that puts salflibc.dll into PATH. If so, that SALFLIBC.DLL is probably an older version than the one provided with a recent FTN95 distribution.

You still need either salflibc or salflibc64/clearwin64

if ftn95 is installed, why wouldn't it find salflibc.dll ?
