It's attached in http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1812549&group_id=157793&atid=805244

It seems that attachments don't work in the forums so I have found another free hosting site :)

quite some time has passed ... anyway ... I just tried the svn build #29356 (version 2.3 developer) and I have the same problem:

Quote
The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.DLL.

I am using Windows 2000 professional with the current updates and service packs (sp 4). My system has the ws2_32.dll in version "5.00.2195.6601" which seams to be from 1999. I just downloaded the version "5.1.2600.2180" and placed it in the installation directory which leaded to an other error:

Quote
The procedure entry point RtlIpv4StringToAddressW could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll.

My system has ntdll.dll in version "5.0.2195.7006" from 1999. I placed version "5.1.2600.2180" of the ntdll.dll from XP SP 2 into the ufo installation directory which didn't solve the problem. According to Microsoft (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa814458(VS.85).aspx) this function is included in the dll since Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista.

I just tested the ntdll.dll in the games installation directory from windows vista (version "6.0.6000.16386"). I still get the same error message. It seams as the dll isn't beeing used but my own ntdll.dll from my system is beeing used instead.

Is this still needed?

Well, at least I would appreciate it if ufo:ai would be running on my system.

And... the obvious question is: What is your system?
Either it IS Win2k as discussed here, or you'd wish a version for Mac OS or Unix  ;D
I don't see much people running WinNT or win 98 these days, and from what I heard this project can run on Linux...

Hey, don't worry about it, I still have my desktop on Win2k/Ubuntu and a laptop on Vista... I usually wait a long time between upgrades  :D
