Many for the alternative build.

Code:
=> mkvmerge
mkvmerge v69.0.0.39 ('Day And Age') 64-bit
Error: no destination file name was given.

mkvmerge -o out [global options] [options1] <file1> [@option-file.json] …
suggestion: please give better names to the releases...
we already have a ton of «vc_redist*.exes» in the world.

I meant the filenames of the archives...
"MKVtoolnix.7z" is very UN-informative,
different from "mkvtoolnix-69.0.0-revision-039-gcea3d558a.7z",
for example.

Ah... Ok... I'll try to remember for the next time, and don't stop just after zip my directory.

Thanks jpsdr for your build...

For Doom9 users who do not regularly check VideoHelp I post the link to your build here:
https://github.com/jpsdr/MKVToolnix-...ws-7/releases/

I just tested it (32-bit only) under Win7, and it works flawlessly. Highly recommended

//EDIT//
I also updated the link to my legacy MKVToolMix versions here
https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.p...47#post1967747
to include this latest Win7-32bit version. Enjoy...


Cheers
manolito

Will not have access to a Linux PC for several weeks, so, unless someone else make a build using the method i've described, no new build for a while.
Also, MSYS2 build is in progress, but for now, only be able to get "dynamic" builds ( the .exe ask for a lot of DLLs ), not success on static builds yet.

Thanks a lot for your hard work, jpsdr.

I myself MIGHT (try to) compile MKVtoolnix and share more old-Windows-compatible builds, but first I would have to ``clean´´ my HDDs and this would take some more weeks or months :–|

Hi manolito again. Continuity of of this post here by you https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.p...39#post1976239

Definitely no reason to become grumpy. Thank your lucky stars you did not go to the Promised Land as they say. You're still here and back on your XP machine and typing away. I guess your recovery and rehabilitation by your health care workers will go on for a while?

Re: the older archive with the last XP compatible version of MKVToolNix.

First of all, I need to tell you I am running Windows XP 64-bit. I downloaded your file and read through your instructions and double checked to make sure I had it right. Running mmg.exe produces this:





Because it is XP 64-bit, I wonder if any of these files in the Sources directory are causing the error.



SYSTRAY.OCX This could be the cause? Is this for 32 bit XP only? To see if the Windows directories have a copy, I searched but it is not listed. In the first error, COMDLG32.OCX is also not found in the Windows directories.

Any help on this please?

This explains all your issues. Only the 32-bit version of MKVToolNix is supported by my tool. Of course it can be run under a 64-bit Windows, but MKVToolNix needs to be 32-bit.

What you did resulted in a mix of 64-bit and 32-bit Files in your ToolNix folder, and this cannot work. It may be possible to tweak my plugin to work with a 64-bit version of MKVToolNix, but I cannot help you with this, because my ancient WinXP computer has a CPU without the 64-bit extension.

But I do not see why you insist on using the 64-bit version of ToolNix under WinXP. I do not believe that this will offer any advantage over the 32-bit version under WinXP. If you consider using ToolNix 32-bit under WinXP 64-bit then the whole content of the WinXP folder is in my archive (the no-install version, just copy the files into the desired folder).


Cheers
manolito

I am using your 32-bit version of MKVToolNix.

I have tracked it down to the _SmartDlg.exe file. At first it complained of the comdlg32.ocx file missing or not registered. I downloaded it and did the regsvr32 to register it. Running _SmartDlg.exe now complains Systray.ocx is not registered. I used regsvr32 and it failed to register, so I downloaded a later version of Systray.ocx and that registered OK.

Unfortunately, it still says Systray.ocx or one of its dependencies not correctly registered. I think there are .dll files missing. I did a search for SmartDlg.exe file on the Internet and found nothing about it or where it came from.

I do not use MKVToolNIx that often now, so I can put up with mkvmerge 29 and GUI 10 error box.

Yeah, my patch contains a lot of stuff which is purely cosmetic and not really needed for the core functions. I see two ways to tackle this:

1. Keep my patch (it uses a ToolNix version from 12.2018). The only difference is that you start the software with "mkvtoolnix-gui.exe" instead of "MMG.exe". This will remove all the bells and whistles, you also need to click away an error message, but it should basically work.

2. The other option is to use the latest Toolnix version which still works withoud any modification under WinXP. This is Version 10.0 from 03.2017, and you can find it here:
https://mkvtoolnix.download/windows/releases/10.0.0/

This version should work out of the box under WinXP, and you have the choice if you prefer the 32-bit or the 64-bit version.


Good luck
manolito

Thanks a lot for your information here.

I have decided to go with your number 1 choice and patch and use those file versions 29. Removing all the bells and whistles is the main problem with me. Studying your mmg.bat file, and I realised it is that Critical Stop.wav that was driving me up the wall. Great idea with Mute_ErrorSound.reg.

I run mkvtoolnix-gui.exe now and all is silent. However, I think I had to run mmg.exe once to get this. I'll shut down and restart to see. I'll put up with that error message. Quick to flick it off.

That mmg.bat and all those files in Sources was a neat trick. :-)

That's really bizarre. Any idea why they aren't plain console binaries?

Qt dependencies might explain why they are 12 MB or more each.

The last version working on WinXP is MMG v8 + mkvmerge.exe v19. Edit the version number in mkvmerge.exe right before "Brave Captain" to make the error message go away.

At the rate that the binaries are growing, you'll soon need to order a new computer from Germany just open them without any videos. There is no need to update to the latest version if you deal with "normal" last gen. videos in h.264/ac-3/etc.

I just updated to Win 2008 R2 this autumn, and it's already considered obsolete.

I downloaded version 19, fired up my hex editor and sure enough found Brave Captain way down towards the bottom of the file. I can see the version number. What do you change it to?

Can this also work with mkvmerge.exe version 29? It has "Like It Or Not" before the number.

Type over 19.0.0 and write 8.3.0. This only disables the nagging box on startup. After version 19 functionality required by the old gui that I prefer to use was removed.

It needs to be 08.3.0 with a leading 0.

After I got that right, running the mkvtoolnix-gui.exe then produced a message box with a d3d9.dll error. This may be because I am running XP 64-bit. I did try both the 32 and 64 bit MKVToolNix 19 versions.

I then copied over and replaced mkvtoolnix-gui.exe 19 with mkvtoolnix-gui.exe 10 as manolito uses. This worked but still displays the original versions differ error box.

At the moment I'll use version 29, as that error box at start up does not bother me that much.
