proj.dll is required by Terrain Builder but is not included in Arma 3 Tools.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


During imports of shapefiles and raster images files with coordinate systems, GDAL's OGRCreateCoordinateTransformation is called and fails. It fails due to a failure to dynamically load (via ::LoadLibrary) proj.dll.

Terrain Builder either needs to ship with proj.dll (or gdal needs to be compiled with the option to statically link it in).

These two issues are a result of the missing file:

Steps To Reproduce

(1) Follow the steps in either:

(2) Put a build (32-bit) of proj.dll into the TerrainBuilder.exe directory.
(3) Repeat either of the above reproduction steps and note that the issues no longer occur.

the next version of TB will be released with proj.dll(in a cases of errors we can also provide an older version proj_fw.dll). We didn't want to release TB with all extended dlls because of a two reasons: the first is about licensing stuff because many libraries cannot be simply released with the main package, and the second is about a get feedback from users which features of TB they really need and which can be silently removed ;-) TB is mainly gamemap editor so we're trying to separate it from many GIS features

We use all the features :p

If anything the ones we don't use are broken and are on FT:)

can anyone give me a feedback If it works now?

It works fine.

seems to be fixed now ;-)
