Msys 1.0 (mingw)

Using msys 1.0 and gcc version 3.2.3 (mingw special 20030504-1) on a win2k host I can compile SDL 1.2 just fine -
however when I run a program I get a dialog box saying “The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00000005).
Click OK to terminate the application”

This seems to be related to the generated DLL’s - when I use the pre-compiled win32 DLL from the libsdl site it works
fine. Strangly enough all the test programs in the SDL distro work fine with the original DLL …

any clues?


Hello !

I had exactly the same problem.
Using the latest SDL-CVS fixed this for me.
