Summary0003759: Auto-Updated installer fails to launch - Entry Point Not Found
DescriptionIt seems like the latest release is broken and won't install via the auto-updater.

I'm currently on Doomseeker 1.3-190727-0915, and I'm getting a critical error when I try to run the new installer downloaded by the auto-updater. It says "The procedure entry point blah blah blah could not be located in the dynamic link library .... doomseeker-update-pkg--updater.exe".

See the steps to reproduce.
Steps To ReproduceRun Doomseeker 1.3-190727-0915.
Wait for the notification that a new update is available.
Click "Download & Install" and wait for it to download.
Click "Restart & Install Now".
Boom - you'll get the error message in the screenshot, and the installer will fail to run.

Workaround: try copying libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll and libstdc++-6.dll from Doomseeker's directory to C:\Users\Albert\AppData\Local\doomseeker\updates and tell me if it worked.

Zalewa: I copied those DLLs and it seems to get further. I see the updater.exe in the "updates" directory now, but I get this different error message.

I used Dependency Walker to discover that it also needed libwinpthread-1.dll. If I copy that DLL over to the "updates" directory too, it works!

updater.exe needs to be statically linked. I'm afraid there's no real hotfix aside from this workaround for anyone else that may get this problem.
