Synopsis :

On clean Windows 2000 SP4 install , upon default apache2triad 1.4.4 install the slimftpd service does not start and reports the folowing error :

The procedure entry point _encode_pointer could not be located in the dynamic link library MSVCR80.dll.

Analysis :

2 versions of the msvcr80.dll file exists , both in the path :
the one bundled with apache2triad , version 8.0.50727.42 in apache2triad\bin
the one bundled with windows , version 8.0.50215.44 in windows\system32

Resolution :

delete msvcr80.dll from the system32 directory of your windows instalation so slimftpd will use the one from apache2triad

Notes :

installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Runtime Libraries Beta2 does not resolve the issue as it apears it is version 8.0.50215.44 too , under windows XP both versions of msvcr80.dll seem to exist

seems a bit strange to me that this bug has not been reported after a month or so of the release so i had to submit it myself , however further bug reporters might want to take a look at this for how a bug report should look
