cant find 'RunBlock' in DLL 'ps2000aWrap.dll'.”

Post by BenLarge » Thu Apr 06, 2017 2:32 pm

I've recently started using this program/software and I'm trying to run the PS2000aVBDotNetExample under visual studio.
when I run the programme in debug mode I receive the run time error “Unable to find an entry point named 'RunBlock' in DLL 'ps2000aWrap.dll'.” after it prompts me to connect channel A and press enter.

I have the dll's in “C:Program Files\ (x86)\Pico Technology\SDK\lib” and it seems not to have a problem finding the others. as I've looked through the code and one of the dll's is used to open the function ps2000aOpenUnit.

I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem and solved it or if they've got any suggestions on how to maybe solve it.

Hi Ben,

Do you have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) installed?

If it is not present in the Windows Programs and Features window, please install this as the wrapper has a dependency on it.

Edit: I've sent you a link to a modified example that does not use the wrapper.
