[maplab-users] Labeling issue

Mapserver was built using the binary 'mapserver-4.2.0-win32-php4.3.4.zip'.
I ran my php_mapscript_42.dll in the dependency walker, and it returned 
one missing files:   APPHELP.DLL
Not sure if this is important or not.
Bitmap labels work fine. Just not true type.

Thanks for all your help - I hope we can figure out a solution!

Re: [maplab-users] Labeling issue


I spoke with a windows developer here and he told me that freetype is 
statically linked in to the mapserver binaries we produce for windows, 
so it  wouldn't be a separate dll.

Did you build mapserver from source or are you using a binary version 
like the one found in the ms4w package?

There is a useful (free) tool for windows called dependency walker 
(www.dependencywalker.com) that will show you which, if any, dynamic 
libraries are missing for a given binary. You could just open your 
mapscript dll in this application to see whether there is a problem.
