2007/5/21, Steve Heller <>:
I can't seem to get the luafilesystem library to work.
No matter what I do, I get a popup message that says
"The application has failed to start because
lua.5.1.dll was not found. Re-installing the
application may fix the problem." When I click "OK", I
get the following:

lua: error loading module 'lfs' from file
        The specified module could not be found.

stack traceback:
        [C]: ?
        [C]: in function 'require'
        dirtest.lua:1: in main chunk
        [C]: ?

Any suggestions as to how I can get this to work?
Obviously it is on Windows.

How did you build lua and lfs ? What version of Lua and lfs are you using ?

It seems that your lfs.dll is looking for lua.5.1.dll, and your lua
dll has a different name (probably lua5.1.dll or lua51.dll). To fix
the problem you can either create a special forwarding dll called
lua.5.1.dll that will forward all calls to your dll (whatever its
name), or you can rebuild lfs and/or lua to have them use matching dll
