Heimdall Suite 1.4Rc2 Command-Line Doesn't Work On Win Xp 32-Bit
Posted 30 May 2013 - 12:54 PM
heimdall.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

heimdall flash --recovery recovery.img --no-reboot
Then a Windows alert popped up saying:
C:\Documents and Settings\me\Desktop\Heimdall-1.4RC2-Win32-Cmdline\Release\heimdall.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
When I clicked "OK" on the alert, the command line says:
Access is denied.

Fyi, I had no problem with the RC2 exe using Windows 7.

The Message "heimdall.exe is not a valid Win32 application" usually states that the .exe is not made for Win-32 , but since other people on the net can use it under XP, i assume it has something to do with MSVC++ redist stuff that screws itself on my machine.
I tried to start heimdall on a WIN7 64bit machine with MSVC++ redist 64bit installed - here i get the message that MSVCR110.dll is missing on my computer. _After_ rebooting of course.
I fear this is just screwed. I gonna try heimdall on a linux machine these days - this probably will work well.

I had exactly similar problems with Heimdall on XP, every version sucked **s. I switched to Ubuntu 12.04 amd64, pulled the 1.4.0 sources from git and compiled Heimdall 1.4.0 for myself. It works reliably. The key here is to compile it from source on Linux. All other ways were waste of time.

to be able to run heimdall on Windows XP, you need to recompile it from Windows 7 targeting the XP plateform. Heimdall is a Visual Studio 2012 project, so to perform it :
- follow the README instructions of the Heimdall repository for Win32. Visual Studio 2012 runs on Windows 7 (unless some hack allows it to run on XP, but I didn't go through it)
- after installing VS Express, apply the Visual Studio Update 1 (or superior, the current one is Update 3): the first release of VS 2012 couldn't compile executables runnable on XP
- In the Configuration Properties > General tab for each project, select the right Plateform toolset: Visual Studio 2012 - Windows XP (v110_xp)
I got an error to compile heimdall-frontend, but if you don't mind, it'll have built a heimdall.exe running on XP after that.
