where to find dll files


Question

I seem to have mislaid the dll files to use the HS2 (dmgr.dll, djtg.dll, etc.) and I cannot for the life of me find them in any digilent material.  I would expect to find them along with the .lib files (...\hs2\digilent.adept.sdk_v2.4.2\lib64 or some such.)  There are 16 .lib files but no .dll files.  IT assures me that no malware scanner has removed them.

 

Where do I find them?

Hi @jmhbfe,

If you have the Adept Runtime installed installed (usually via the Adept System download or through WaveForms), you should still be able to use Adept with the HS2 without issues. The DLLs themselves got installed in C:/Windows/System32 and Windows/SysWOW64, though I suppose you could copy them over to the same directory as the application.

Did you want to do something in particular with the DLLs?

Thanks,
JColvin

I am using the SDK with an HS2 without using Adept per se, so that my host code can configure my FPGA without having to have Vivado in the mix (Vivado hw manager keeps the HS2 open, so to do config, and use the HS2 for i2c, I have to open hw manager, config, close hw manager.)  I never really thought about the DLLs until last week when all of a sudden my host code couldn't find the DLLs.

Yes, there they are in System32.  I wonder why my host code can't find them all of a sudden?  Any ideas?  I certainly didn't change my PATH variable.

In order to run my host code on a machine that did not have Adept installed, I had copied the necessary DLLs to that machine, so I still had copies.  Copied them back to a folder on my development machine, put that folder in PATH, and everything works fine.  But I should not have had to do that.

Hi @jmhbfe,

I reached out to another engineer much more familiar with Adept for their input, but neither of us know what might have happened for the host code was suddenly not able to locate the DLLs on the development machine, though I'm glad to hear that you got it working.

Thanks,
JColvin
