Because DLL-fixer is a big scam, that's why... They want you or (mainly) other that will follow you if you put their site in reference to reach their front page. This is where they can fool you.

Lyrositor was right we should never download from them. The thing is we need the Libeay32.dll, you take it from them and you leave the premises as fast as you can... Those type of websites I don't trust them, usually I'll clean my browser after going there.

I suspect it's in order to prevent hotlinking, partly. If people could just share the download link, they would never know it's provided courtesy of DLL-files.com. Any website could start serving links to DLL-files.com files: it would get a higher amount of visits, consuming less bandwidth, while DLL-files.com receives less visits and thus less revenue from advertising.

That's not why you shouldn't download from them. I did a bit of cursory research on them, and it looks like DLL-files.com is a legit site; they need money to run, though, which is why they try selling you their software, DLL-fixer. It probably poses no more threat to you than any other website on the Internet (in fact, Facebook probably spies more on you than DLL-files.com). Not to mention that if such a widely used website distributed dangerous software, I'm pretty sure all the major anti-virus software tools would set off several alarms the moment you visited it or once DLL-fixer is downloaded.

As I said, the reason why you shouldn't download from them is because it doesn't fix the bigger problem, it's just a temporary patch to get it working.

I wanted to point that out too. :P

At the risk of staying slightly off-topic here, I'll say that I'm somewhat averse to those DLL download sites, and am more inclined to align with Annabelle's view: Rather than needing money to sustain a library of DLLs, it's the other way round - they hold the DLLs as a hook to lure people to buy their rather worthless (not harmful, just useless) DLL fix-up tools. Most people never need to download a DLL from a third party site anyway and usually come across links to those places when they've "broken" something and they're getting an error message mentioning a DLL.

Setting that gripe aside, I notice that the DLL on DLL-Fixer is v1.0.0c which is about 18 months old, so I've grabbed the sources from http://www.openssl.org/ for the latest version (1.0.1e) and built new DLLs using ActiveState Perl 5.16.3, NASM 2.07 and Visual Studio 2003 (instructions are in the OpenUru wiki).
You can download a zip containing both libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll from here: http://uru.mac-fife.me.uk/openssl-1.0.1h.zip - at least you know the provenance of those files if you're worried about the DLL-Fixer ones ;)

[Edit - updated link since I built a post-Heartbleed version of OpenSSL]
[Edit2 - Jan 19, 2015 - OpenSSL DLLs version 1.0.1l are here: http://uru.mac-fife.me.uk/openssl-1.0.1l.zip]
[Edit3 - May 20, 2015 - OpenSSL DLLs version 1.0.2a are here: http://uru.mac-fife.me.uk/openssl-1.0.2a.zip]

When I had a similar problem, the one thing I noticed was that both dll's had to be at the same version number.

I found LIBeay32.dll and SSLeay32.dll at version 1.0.1.0 from BOINC manager, the program that manages the [email protected] operations on my PC. They solved my client install problems.

I found that using versions at different release numbers gave false alarms, looking for other .dll's that are not necessary.

This is why we need to grab the Libeay32.dll from dll-fixer.com. You must use the same .dll as Lyrositor used.

I had the same issue with some custom-made plclients recently where I had to ask their creator to send me their .dll files because as soon as you have a slight difference in your version, it won't work.

Annabelle, I think Mac_Fife's download, which contains both files at version 1.0.1.5 compiled from the openSSL source, is the best source in this thread. I'd avoid the dll-files site, partly because of its intrusive "fixer" app, but also because it doesn't contain the latest versions of many dll's, and the versions it has of LIBeay32.dll and SSLeay32.dll are different from each other :o

Ah sorry for that AlanD :lol: . I read Mac_Fife rapidly... I was more focused on other matter yesterday. The better a source is the better the file will be. You just need the one that fits. Sometime they miss a line of code which makes it impossible.

I run on a Macintosh using Wine and the Cider wrapper, installed via MacPorts, so getting the Skydiving client to work was a little different for me.

I downloaded UruSkydiver.exe and put it in this folder (alongside UruExplorer.exe and UruLauncher.exe):

(drive)/opt/local/share/mystonline/data

where (drive) is the name of my hard drive.

I also downloaded libeay32.dll and put it in that same folder.

Then thanks to Christian Walther's info, I opened this file:

/Applications/MacPorts/Myst Online (Cider).app/Contents/Resources/Myst Online.app/Contents/Info.plist

and at line 30 found:

<string>C:\Program Files\Uru Live\UruExplorer.exe</string>

and changed it to:

<string>C:\Program Files\Uru Live\UruSkydiver.exe</string>

And then I launch Uru in the usual way, and I'm in, with Skydiving capabilities again. Thanks to everybody for the software and the info.

It matters which dll you download - there are now 9 different ones at that site - the problem is that the one I chose - 1.0.1.10 - caused the client to immediately crash with a message that the program could not start, and my only option was to close it. Zesty of Xeniphers sent me the one that works - version 1.0.0.3

Sounds like it was a bad DLL build as the interface hasn't changed. 1.0.0.3 is very old (December 2010), and though it doesn't matter much the way Uru uses it, has a few vulnerabilities.

If it helps, I rebuilt my OpenSSL DLLs (libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll) at 1.0.1L (or 1.0.1.12 depending on how you want label them) back in January, and updated the download link in my post, 10 posts above this one.

I've again refreshed my OpenSSL DLLs (libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll) for OpenSSL version 1.0.2a:
http://uru.mac-fife.me.uk/openssl-1.0.2a.zip
