As a workaround, one could try to manually replace zlib32.dll in a Windows
GSView 4.8 installation with the current zlib1.dll version 1.2.3.
Unfortunately the maintainer of GSview choose not to reply to my bug
report which included a question about the source of the ZLIB32.DLL.
The maintainer finally replied to the last of my three attempts to
contact him (very timely, regarding the different timezones we are in):
| I can't do much about it just at the moment. I've had a computer
| motherboard failure and while I've now got a new computer, I haven't
| got all my development tools running yet.
| I will update the DLL in the next release. Yes, I compiled the DLL
| myself. There wasn't a precompiled version at the time I started using
As long as I cant be sure that the replacement zlib1.dll from zlib.net
is fully compatible to the ZLIB32.DLL distributed with GSview 4.8 I wont
give any advice to exchange it.
