WinMerge and 7Zip - need DLL

    Hi,

    I got both WinMerge and 7-Zip a while ago (independently). I just now
    tried to use WinMerge and it reported that I needed a DLL for 7-Zip:

    7-Zip version installed: 4.65; DLL missing: Merge7z465U.dll
    7-Zip version recommend: 4.57; DLL missing: Merge7z457U.dll

    I Googled the 'Net and couldn't find either DLL. Any idea how I can
    find either of them, preferably the one needed for my installed
    version of 7-Zip.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Richard

    P.S.:
    I forgot to mention that I tried the Plugin Download link
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/winmerge/files/3. 7-Zip plugin/
    provided by WinMerger which listed a bunch of &-Zip DLLs, but I
    couldn't find any version name like the two I allegedly require.

    Did I miss something on this list?

    Thanks again in Advance,
    Richard

    PPS:

    I just realized that WinMerge difference between two files is working
    fine, which is my immediate concern. Apparently the missing DLL
    negatively impacts some WinMerge features, but not all.

    http://www.freewarefree.net/search/merge7z457u+dll

    SourceForge.net: WinMerge: Detail: 2741085 - 7zip support is a year ...

    Renaming the files for 457 seems to work with 4.65 Merge7z457U.dll to
    Merge7z465U.dll

    http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2741085&group_id=13216&atid=213216

    ===================

    You might want to look at this too, there's a 457 in the filename anyway:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/winmerge/files/3. 7-Zip plugin/

    Browse Files for WinMerge DllBuild 0026

    Merge7zInstaller0026-432-457.exe 1.1 MB 2007-12-23
    Merge7z0026-432-457.7z 951.5 KB 2007-12-23

    Thanks, Mike. I'm filing this until I complete my current programming
    task using WinMerge, which I belatedly discovered works without fixing
    the 7-zip DLL.

    Best wishes,
    Richard
