Stacking problem

Today, when I attempt to stack images I get:

Unable to load DLL 'PhotLib.dll': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

I have the same problem attempting to stack images from any telesope system in any filter.  I have no problem loading and doing the photometry on any individual image..

Stacking work-around

Hi Phil:

Work-around which works for most users (mentioned previously):

1.- first open an image

2.- go back to image list

3. - then select images to stack and click stack

Does this work for you? Your last sentence may imply NO? Try in that order.

Thanks, Ken.  That worked.  As you said, it seems that the order (open single image first, then stack) is the key.

I had the same problem and Ken's work-around worked. The question is: Why should we have to employ a work-around? This did not seem to be a problem previously.

Porting of VPhot to x64 bit OS

Ed:

Almost certainly resulted from porting the VPhot system to a x64 bit OS last year for security. Haven't spent the time to find a fix. Some day!?
