Possible "ChilkatZip.dll" problem solution

Recommended Posts

Guest quink99

Hello all,As a brand new and delighted user of AS2004.5 I, too, have just been hit by the dreaded problem of being unable to start AS2004.5 with the error message, in my case, "runtime error 339", refering to the "ChilkatZip.dll". At the time this occured I had just used my Spy Subtract antivirus program for my weekly "cootie" scan.The solution, for me, was actually quite simple. 1)When you get the error message go START/FIND and locate the "ChilkatZip.dll". Mine was in the FS9 main folder.2) Copy and paste the .dll into your FS9/MODULES and your FS/MODULES/ACTIVE SKY 2004 folder.3) With a large smile on your face fire up Active Sky 2004.5 which should now work correctly.While this doesn't solve the deletion or corruption problem or what ever is causing this it is so fast and easy that it almost doesn't matter until a more permanent solution is eventually found. Regards,Frederick

Hello all,In reply to the two above messages;Jim,Your absolutely right! The only place the "ChilkatZip.dll" should go is in the Active Sky 2004 folder. I also keep one in a desk top folder so I can copy and replace it when a SpySubtract scan deletes it.vgbaron,I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or whether SpySubtract is. When I run a scan the "ChilkatZip.dll" never appears in the "DETAILS" screen of the the SpySubtract GUI and I, thus, have no way to move it to SpySubtract "WHITE LIST" so it just keeps getting removed with each "cootie" scan. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.Regards,Frederick

I have sent the file to Panda 12th Feb, so am expecting their reply in a few days.

Looks like Panda have sorted this one, after doing my antivirus update yesterday, everything remained intact
