gtkwave is back online, current win32 binaries available

    It's been a while since the current 1.3 series could be found online
    outside of sunsite. Its source tarball can now be found here:
    http://home.nc.rr.com/gtkwave/

    http://home.nc.rr.com/gtkwave/gtkwave9x.html has the current (1.3.58)
    compile for windows with GTK+-1.2. Apparently, 1.3.19 is the last
    win32 version floating around so it's been quite a while...

    It's trivial to compile the viewer under MinGW for GTK+-2.x. I'd put
    the win32 with GTK+-2.x binary up also, but I've topped out my "free"
    webspace. (Yes, I realize the linux-workshop page exists and is hacked
    but there's absolutely nothing I can do about it as it's not my
    server.) If anybody out there wants to create an installer for the
    win32 versions, be my guest.

    I'll look into updating the Manchester 2.0pre branch such that
    stability returns (e.g., no crashes on basic functions like file->open)
    and add support for LXT2 and VZT when I find the time...besides this
    being a busy year, the 2.0 codebase has changed considerably since it
    forked around the 1.3.20 days so I'm not going to know where to perform
    brain surgery to the code right off the bat.

    Cheers,
    -Tony

    I tried it and did work. I followed instruction to copy the dlls and it
    seems not to find them.

    As an experiment you can try to copy the DLLs into the same temp
    directory as the viewer. If the viewer comes up, the directory you
    copied the DLLs into originally is not in the DLL path on your specific
    system.

    As far as releasing a windows installer that would get past these kinds
    of issues, other people have done this before for previous versions.
    What you could do is install a previous version and copy the new
    executable over the old one from the installer:

    ftp://ftp.icarus.com/pub/eda/gtkwave/Windows

    ....I admit this is a strange workaround, but it should get you up and
    running for the time being. (I'm not a windows developer otherwise I'd
    support it directly, sorry!)

    Regards,
