RE: Nmap 4.22SOC7 Released
From: "Rob Nicholls" <robert () everythingeverything co uk>

SOC7 seems to work okay for me too. I tried "nmap -sC 192.168.x.x -vv" with
other versions I have and SOC5 and SOC6 also work fine (or at least don't
crash).

However, I did come across an issue with a version of SOC6 (SVN rev 5916)
that I had previously compiled with VS.NET 2003, which popped up an error
message in Windows Vista (and logged the same text as an Application Popup
in the Event Log, with no more info to go on that I can see):

nmap.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because MSVCR71D.dll was not
found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

This dll is apparently a debug version of msvcr71.dll, so I suspect I must
have built a debug version instead of a release version (something I'll look
into later). And nmap said a similar (but not identical) error message to
what Lawrence saw:

SCRIPT ENGINE: Initiating script scanning.
LUA INTERPRETER in c:\xxxxxxxxxxxx\nmap-svn-
5916\nmap\nse_init.cc:698: error loading module 'bit' from file
'C:\tools\win32\
nmap-4.22SOC6-svn-5916\nselib\bit.dll':
        The specified module could not be found.

SCRIPT ENGINE: Aborting script scan.

I believe line 698 is the last line of:

        /* load the *.nse file, set the closure and execute (init) the test 
         * */
        SCRIPT_ENGINE_LUA_TRY(luaL_loadfile(l, filename));
        lua_pushvalue(l, -2);
        lua_setfenv(l, -2);
        SCRIPT_ENGINE_LUA_TRY(lua_pcall(l, 0, 0, 0));

This appears to be the very same line (711) as Lawrence saw in his SOC7
error message. Is this perhaps a problem encountered by people that have
compiled the binaries themselves? It's an odd one that I can't seem to
reliably reproduce: the very same version I had compiled worked fine on
another Vista machine and on a Windows 2003 machine (the latter was used to
compile the binary).

I ran Process Monitor on the laptop (where I get the error message mentioned
above) and noticed a few quirks:

I spotted it trying to access *nix locations for some random numbers:

4718    41:07.2 nmap.exe        4960    CreateFile      C:\dev\arandom
4719    41:07.2 nmap.exe        4960    CreateFile      C:\dev\urandom

Anyone know why it's doing that on Windows?

Then I saw it looking for "bit" related stuff (even though bit.lua and
init.lua don't appear to exist anywhere, including source code, nor do bit
or lua folders), followed by a desperate search for the (debug) dll I
mentioned:

I might try recompiling SOC6 and compiling SOC5 and SOC7 later tonight and
see what happens then. Hopefully someone will find something useful out of
all the above, as I can't see anything obvious!

I'm not seeing the issue with nmap installed in it's default location.
If I install nmap to an alternative location (with winpcap in the same 
place or in it's default), I also don't see the issue.
Scan was nmap -sC <target>

Here's error 14001 from winerror.h:
//
// MessageId: ERROR_SXS_CANT_GEN_ACTCTX
//
// MessageText:
//
//  This application has failed to start because the application 
configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this 
problem.
//
#define ERROR_SXS_CANT_GEN_ACTCTX        14001L

which doesn't say much to me, but there may be a clue in the Windows 
Application event log.

And for a windows strace, Process Monitor may be able to shed some light:

Hi folks,

Platform is WinXP here, I am getting this error when launching a
Script Scan (-sC)

Just verified with SOC6, had the same error.
    

Do you have access to strace or something like it on Windows so we can see
where it's looking for bit.dll?
