Hi, I’m trying to help one of my animators use the exporter. When we try to run maya2egg7.exe from his command line we get a mysterious error dialog popup that complains about a missing MFC80.dll. I only ran this command “C:\Panda3d-1.3.2\bin\maya2egg7.exe -h” to try and get at least the help page to display and it displays this message.
Maya 7 is installed in his machine (he uses it everyday). He also has Panda3d-1.3.2 installed. As far as I can tell he has a completely normal installation everything else seems to work except this.
I searched my computer and I do not have MFC80.dll either but maya2egg7 work fine for me. The only difference I can think of between my system and his system is that he downloaded/installed panda today but mine was installed when 1.3.2 was released.
Is it possible that someone re-compiled the panda3d-1.3.2 distribution recently and for some reason maya2egg7 was compiled using VC2005 which inadvertantly created a dependency to MFC8.dll? This seems remote to me, but I am at a loss otherwise.
Somewhere around version 1.4.0, I added some code to fix this problem once and for all. It should no longer be happening. Therefore, I suspect that your problem really isn’t the same problem. What error message are you getting, exactly, and under what circumstances?
I’m using the Maya Tool 3 which I believe is a modified version of the tool by ynjh_jo. The problem is, I don’t get an error. Instead, Maya claims the file was exported to .egg when in reality no .egg file is created and I’m left with a temp file of the original maya binary (cube_temp.mb).
I saw in another thread (couldn’t find it again when I searched) that ynjh_jo suggsted its a problem where a certain DLL file can’t be found and the path needs to be changed in the env variable. So I was just wondering where I can change that (and what DLL is it trying to find?).
I’m currently using Maya 8, but I use to use Maya 6, so I’m guessing its finding the wrong DLL.
…Or should I be using a different maya2egg converter? Thanks for your help
I guess I should clarify I ran maya2egg8 in the command prompt, not the MayaPandaTool3. I would still like to use the MayaPandaTool (or something similar) since it seems easier to use, what with all the options easily selectable from the gui…
