HWBOT Aquamark v2.51.106 Available, Mandatory From Jan'14

Another quick and short news item to inform you that El Genieben has released a new version of the HWBOT Aquamark wrapper. V2.51.106 is a build that is mainly fixing some bugs that came with the renewed V2.50 wrapper. The version is compatible with the HWBOT engine, as is the previous v2.27 wrapper. That means you can still use both to submit results to HWBOT (and the Country Cup, of course). From January 2014 forward, v2.51 will be mandatory for submissions and the previous versions will become unsupported. In other words, you have about 40 days to submit all your backups.

Thank you all for your understanding, and thanks to El Genieben for all his work on the Aquamark wrapper!

Works here too. Note: it is recommended to use the latest version for the Country Cup as well. The previous versions may have some issues with the AMD CPUs, and may require El Genieben to manually fix the files to work.

Sweden The Mutt says:

Tried the new version from the downloadlink on the front page and it installed fine but if I try to run the benchmark I get this error:
"HWBOT Aquamark3.exe - Unable to locate Component
This application has failed to start beacause MSVCR100.dll waas not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."

Tried re-installing at least 5 times but I still get the same message...

Quite hard to have a system without VC2010, but I guess there are. I will bundle it next time.
