ECL IDE fails to run on Window

Topics specific to the use of the ECL IDE

Wed May 04, 2016 1:27 pm Change Time Zone

Tried to install ECLIDE on Window 8.1 Enterprise 64-bit.

1. Downloaded hpccsystems-eclide-community_5.6.2-1Windows-i386.exe
2. Installed it.
3. Launched ECL IDE got error because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll not found. See attached figure.

Install Microsoft Visual C++ (help found at this link: ... 17/td-p/62

4. Re-launched ECL IDE: now get eclcc.exe error.

5. The cluster has a different version. From shell on cluster:

$ eclcc --version
5.4.6 community_5.4.6-1

At this point I started all over with a fresh Windows instance.

6. Installed HPCC Client Tools for Windows version 5.4.6-1 (the version that matches the cluster).
7. Installed ECL IDE 5.6.2-1 (because I could not find version 5.4.6-1).
8. Installed dll as discussed in #3 above.
9. Launched ECL IDE
10. In "Preferences > Compiler" overrode compiler to use 5.4.6 instead of 5.6.2.
11. Connected to cluster.
12. Alas, eclcc.exe crashes again. It actually crashes many times. At least I have to close the "eclcc.exe has stopped working" popup about 9 times. No window pops up with an error as in #4 above. However, after closing the "not working" popup 5 times the following error appears in the ECL IDE error log window.

WARNING: SP Exception - CSoapResponseBinding: ... Client version build_3_08 (server community_5.4.6-1) is out of date.

I am able to use the cluster from ECL IDE running on my Mac in Wine. That version is 5.4.2-1 as is the compiler.

13. Therefore, I download the ECL IDE & Client Tools version 5.4.2-1, installed it on a fresh windows instance. Again, eclcc.exe stops working--complains about a compiler mismatch.

I am out of ideas. We will consider upgrading the cluster to 5.6.2-1. But that is just a workaround.

  • Must load dll to run IDE (5.6.2)
  • Server(5.4.6) + IDE (5.6.2) + CTools (5.6.2) -> compiler mismatch error in popup
  • Server(5.4.6) + IDE (5.6.2) + CTools (5.4.2) -> compiler out of date in IDE error log
  • Server(5.4.6) + IDE (5.4.2) + CTools (5.4.2) on Mac in Wine -> Works
  • Server(5.4.6) + IDE (5.4.2) + CTools (5.4.2) -> compiler mistmatch error in popup

Have you tried to apply the update for Universal C Runtime in Windows:

It is a work-around. We will try to fix it in our next HPCC Clienttools relesae.

Update: ECLIDE is working with KEL.

I do not know what change made it work but the configuration is:

1. ECLIDE 6.0.0
2. KEL 0.7 (5.6.2)
3. Java JDK 8u92

Glad to hear it works. ECLIDE 6.0.0 includes Clienttools build with improved required runtime libraries package.
