Today, I installed ClamWin 0.98.7 on an old Windows XP computer (I write this from an other computer).

When I saw it wasn't running, I tried to start it manually but it crashed immediatly after. I redid it a second time but with the same result.

Later, after I restart the computer, I retried again : same result.

At searching why it didn't work, I found http://forums.clamwin.com/viewtopic.php?t=2909 this topic (about a similar problem on Windows 98 ), where it's said to check a log file, and I checked if it was a such file.

I found a such file (its exact name is ClamWin1.log). Here is it's content

Code:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "ClamWin.py", line 55, in ?
  File "pyc.pyo", line 9, in ?
  File "pyc.pyo", line 7, in __load
ImportError: DLL load failed: Le module spécifié est introuvable.


I also found in the same folder three similar ClamWin related files, with exactly the same content. Only the number in the name is different (2, 3 and 4 instead of 1). Apparently each one was created at a different try to start ClamWin.

I suggest that you first uninstall ClamWin and then reinstall it. Once in a while an installation doesn't go quite right, so try another install to see if that was the problem and get back here with results. Perhaps a Python dependency didn't work right.

Thanks for using ClamWin.
