HF 4.93.2 fails to install and run on Windows 2000 SP4

"The procedure entry point IsWow64Process could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNAL32.dll"

Windows 2000 SP4

Helicon Filter 4.93.2.0

IsWow64Process is a function that checks to see if HF is running on a 64 bit XP or Vista machine.

If you allow that check to fail and then proceed with the whatever is necessary to start and run HF, then I suppose it would run on my machine.

The odd thing is that I had HF 4.88.2.0 installed and running but after I tried to install HF 4.93.2.0, now HF 4.88.2.0 won't run. I get:

The application or DLL ...\gdplus.dll is not a valid Windows image.

4.88.2.0 ran fine before I tried to install 4.93.2.0.

The version of gdplus.dll shipped with 4.88.2 is
6.0.6000.16386

I copied the version of gdplus.dll that came with PTGui into the HF folder
and 4.88.2.0 ran.

The version of gdplus.dll that ships with PTGui is
5.1.3102.5581

So I guess that newer versions of HF will not be compatible with Windows 2000 SP4 -- right?

I just ran into the very same problem when trying to upgrade from 4.90 to 4.93.2

The procedure entry point IsWow64Process could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNAL32.dll"

Windows 2000 SP4

Helicon Filter 4.93.2.0

It seems I'll have to reinstall and use 4.90 until the problem is fixed.

Please replace library\focus.dll with this file
http://downloads.heliconfilter.com/focus.dll
This should solve the problem.

New focus.dll solved the problem

Thanks, Dan, for this quick solution.

Replacing focus.dll did indeed solve the reported problem.
