Problems importing data on new sleepyhead installation
Hi I have recently reinstalled Sleepyhead after having used it successfully some time ago.
I had a hard drive failure and so changed to a new one.
I didn't have any need to use Sleepyhead so didn't install it until now.
I downloaded the latest version 1.0.0-beta-2 and it installed with no problems.
My operating system is Windows 7 64 bit
However, when I try to install my data from my SD card I get the following error

"This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Please contact the applications support team for more information."

I have tried setting up a alternative profile,
I have removed and reinstalled the  Sleepyhead software.
I have rebooted the computer after the reinstall (even though the software installation procedure didn't prompt me to do so).
I have looked at the options in the Sleepyhead preferences but I have not changed anything in there as I cant see anything that appears to be relevant to my issue.

So far I am unable to complete the data download.

Some times the message comes up at about the 60 percent mark of the data download. The program then forces me to shut it down.
When I restart the process it goes along much faster till it get to the point where it crashed, then it continues slowly till it gets to the 99% mark.
Then the error message comes up again.
and I'm forced to close the program.

I have been using this machine (and the SD card) since 2013.
I can see the dates for the data on the card in Windows Explorer. So there is a lot of data.
Windows Explorer Properties tells me that there is 214MB of data (used space) but it also shows that there is still 1.54 GB of free space on the card.
I would appreciate any suggestions of what I can try to make this work.
Kind Regards,

Hi AussiePaul - Welcome

You may be missing a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime library dll.  Here is a link to the available libraries from Microsoft:

I hope this will help.

Hi! Thanks for the welcome and the reply. I tried downloading the latest Runtime... and the two previous ones as well, but nothing changed.
I have tried several re- installs but still nothing has changed.
Happy to try any other suggestions because I'm at a loss here at the moment.

which ones exactly did you try to install? (really try to be as specific as possible like: the first one from the "Visual Studio 2013 (VC++ 12.0)" )

Try this one: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download...x?id=40784
and you have to choose the "vcredist_x86.exe" (yes you have a 64Bit OS but SH is compiled for 32bit - which is no issue at all - but you really need the corresponding runtimes) ... or take them both - but make sure, you get the 32bit version as well! (in a few weeks you have them either way as they are installed by enough programs)

(If I remember correctly SH and the corresponding QT-version both used the VS2013 runtimes)

Hi TBMx,
I installed "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 first.

I figured that the latest would have everything that was relevant from earlier.

Then when that made no difference, I tried Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013, and then

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4

I hadn't thought to try the X86 version but "SH is compiled for 32bit" makes sense so I did try that from the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013  and still the same result.

I may have inadvertently misled you about my Windows installation.
This is not a recent install.
I changed to the new hard drive on 05/Dec/2015.
I just have not needed to have SH software on it since I did the install, so I have not put it on.
I have decided recently that I'd like to have a look at my recent data and hence the reason for now wanting it back on.

I would have thought all of these Runtimes would have been on anyway as a part of the software I have installed over the year or so since I went to the new hard drive.
Thanks for your assistance in this.
Kind regards,

I thought it might be helpful to display all of the Redistributable Packages I have on my computer including the version numbers.
Thank you again for taking the time to help me.

welll .... early in the morning ... should have read your error-message completely ... it's not a MS-VC problem it is with minGW / gcc (which seems to be used by jedimark rather than VS2013)
that's really odd because the neccessary libraries are included in the installer - I just double checked that.

did you ran the installer with "admin-priviliges" aka right click on it and than "run as admin"? If not - try that!
and did you change the installpath? (or have moved the system-default-paths?) if so: use the default ones!

if that doesn't help either: basically your system is screwed somewhere ... do you have by any chance eclipse / mingw / gcc or some other compiler on your system? (or some really scary drivers?) ... I would suspect another library in your path-environment or the systemfolders, which has the same filename but is not the same version. (does not necessarily need to be the libstdc++) .. or maybe your WOW (windows on windows) is messed up.

you could try and repair that by hand - just google for the libstdc++-6.dll ... mess around with the dependcy-walker-tools ... the one in the sleepyhead install folder is the one you want to use^^ (and be prepared for the total-windows-DLL-Hell to rain down on you^^)

in the end it might be easier to just grab a virtual PC copy of windows 7 or 10 (MS has enough ready-to-use for free download with a 30-day-trial) and run SH from there^^

EDIT: if you - in the end - manage to get SH working, it would be nice for others with the same problem, if you could share your solution.

Hi TBMx Thanks  once more for the reply.

On at least 2 of the times I tried to reinstall SH (out of probably 5  now) I did try running as administrator.
Made no difference.

I have never changed the install paths from the defaults... or the system-default-paths.

"do you have by any chance eclipse / mingw / gcc or some other compiler on your system?"
Not that I am aware of.
I don't do any compiling so I can't see anyway it would be.
"(or some really scary drivers?)"
I really don't think so... but I'm not sure just what a "really scary driver is"

"you could try and repair that by hand"
I think that would be  a bit of an over reach for my capabilities.

"might be easier to just grab a virtual PC copy of windows 7"
I do have a Virtual Machine set up on this computer. "Oracle VM VirtualBox"
I have only used it once, just out of interest, but that would be an option.

I also have a laptop that I tend to only use when I want a portable computer, but I could just put SH on there.

"... share your solution."
I agree, however I think I have probably gone as far as my trouble shooting on this is going to go, not because I'm not interested, but because I realize I'm probably going to have to exceed my levels of expertise far beyond where I would feel comfortable, if I were to continue.

I think I'll try the VM later today.
(As I said, it's already installed)... only needs a click on an icon and it can be running, then install SH on that.

If that turns out to not be suitable, for what ever reason, I'll fire up the laptop and install SH on that.
Thanks again for your help.
I'm off for my morning swim now.
All the best,

For giggles, did you try running the broken GL version of SH? It's in the install directory.
