I'm attempting to run the latest WAU installer after unzipping it to an empty directory and setup.exe pops up a message box: "WoWAceUpdater Setup: setup.exe - Bad Image" (title), "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\dfshim.dll is not a valid Windows imgae. Please check this against your installation diskette." (body)
Add/Remove programs shows "Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (x64)" (Also 3.0 and 1.1, and the 2.0 and 3.0 SDKs are installed).
The DLL objected to:
10/24/2007 01:47 AM 96,760 dfshim.dll
Version is 2.0.50727.42.
I'm thinking that the installer of a system that's supposed to be platform neutral (.NET) is somehow refusing to run on its 64-bit counterpart.
I've been successfully updating ACE using command-line Subversion, but I wanted to install WAU to help guildmates who want the GUI updater. (But I may end up recommending Tortoise for those needing other Subversion-based addons, like Outfitter and Norganna's Auctioneer.)
