    Runtime Error - Application unable to start correctly

    Hello, I am trying to get a sqlite database in a 64bit C++ console application. Using the directions below I was able to get the code to compile but I get a runtime error when executing the application.

    askyb.com ยป Establish a connection to SQLite database using C++

    The error is "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application" The only other thing I did that was not in the tutorial is make the build a 64bit application.

    Code:
    
    #include"stdafx.h"
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<sqlite3.h>
    
    int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    {
    sqlite3 *db;
    char *zErrMsg = 0;
    int rc;
    
        rc = sqlite3_open("test.db", &db);
    //if (rc){
    //    fprintf(stderr, "Can't open database: %s\n", sqlite3_errmsg(db)); 
    //    exit(0);
    //}
    //else{
    //    fprintf(stderr, "Opened database successfully\n");
    //}
    //sqlite3_close(db);
    return 0;
    }

    So, did you re-build the Library as 64 bits?

    From 2.3.1 NTSTATUS values
    Code:
    0xC000007B
    STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_FORMAT
    EDIT2: 64 Bit apps require 64 Bit libraries. An DLL is a library.

    Thanks for responding. Yes this is the command that I used to make the lib.

    Code:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\Tools>vsvars32.bat
    Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 x86 tools.
    
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\Tools>cd C:\SQLite\lib\64
    
    C:\SQLite\lib\64>lib /def:sqlite3.def /machine:x64
    Microsoft (R) Library Manager Version 10.00.40219.01
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.
    
       Creating library sqlite3.lib and object sqlite3.exp
    
    C:\SQLite\lib\64>

    To get the actual DLL I started a blank dll project (64 bit) and added (sqlite3.h,sqlite3ext.h,shell.c,sqlite3.c) files and compiled the project.
    Then I moved the 64bit DLL to the program directory but still get the same error

    The only modification I had to make to the c code was
    Code:
    #pragma warning(disable: 4996)
    that I had to add because of this error message

    Error 1 error C4996: 'GetVersionExA': was declared deprecated

    I have no idea if that is right; (never used MSVC to build Libraries).

    Link to someone post with related error.

    c++ - Runtime error (dll loading) with win32 applications on x64 system, while compiling 0K - Stack Overflow

    Maybe the response will help you.

    I would at least try dependency walker to see if it sees a problem.

    It should be easier if you grab the source and dump it into your project and compile.
    No need to use libraries. No need to use the command line.
    Just add them to the project and compile using the IDE.

    I tried that but the files are .c code and visual studio does not like them because the application is c++. Renaming the files to .cpp gives me errors.

    You can compile C files in a C++ project just fine. If there are any errors, post 'em.
    (Don't rename the file to ".cpp".)

    I created a test project and here is the results (for this test I did not rename the files)

    Clicking this error takes me to the very first line of 'sqlite3.c
    Code:
    Error    1    error C1853: 'Debug\SqliteTest.pch' precompiled header file is from a previous version of the compiler, or the precompiled header is C++ 
    and you are using it from C (or vice versa)    c:\users\desktop\sqlitetest\sqlite3.c    1    1    SqliteTest
    Clicking this error takes me to the very first line of shell.c
    Code:
    Error    2    error C1853: 'Debug\SqliteTest.pch' precompiled header file is from a previous version of the compiler, or the precompiled header is C++ 
    and you are using it from C (or vice versa)    c:\users\desktop\sqlitetest\shell.c    1    1    SqliteTest

    You are talking about the SQLite amalgamation file, right? You should be able to configure MSVC to compile it as C, e.g., /Tc, /Tp, /TC, /TP (Specify Source File Type), and perhaps the mere fact that it has a .c file extension should already trigger that.

    Create another test project, and during the project creation, uncheck the option to enable precompiled headers.

    It compiled but what adverse affects does unchecking precompile headers do to the project?

    Right-click the C files in the project and select properties. The select the options as seen in the screenshot.
    For configuration, select all configurations.

    Precompiled headers speed up compilation time if you are including a lot of headers that takes a long time to compile.
    You can either selectively disable them, create multiple ones (not tested) or disable them entirely.

    In a sufficiently large project, you would not benefit from the compilation speed up during development that can result from appropriate use of precompiled headers.
