Summary0009932: 64-bit legacy Windows version contains 32-bit fmod.dll, doesn't start
DescriptionI just downloaded the new version for my 64-bit system, but everytime I try to start it, a message comes up telling me that "The program could not start properly because fmod64.dll is missing. Reinstall the program to repair this." (crude translation of the message by me).

But no such file is located in the downloaded zip-file of the 64-bit version of 0.43.05 as of now.

I can start and run the 32-bit version though.
Steps To Reproduce- Have 64-bit system
- Download 43.05 64-bit version
- Unzip into folder
- Start dwarf fortress.exe
- Get message saying fmod64.dll is missing
TagsNo tags attached.

I just downloaded [^] and it definitely contains fmod64.dll. Could you try downloading it again?

Ah, sorry, I forgot to mention that I downloaded "x64 Legacy Windows".
SDL Windows works, but Legacy doesn't.

I have downloaded it multiple times to see if there was a problem whith the download, but it's always telling me that it's missing the dll.

As I put the dll from another download into the Legacy folder I was able to start it.

Ah, thanks. It contains fmod.dll instead, so that does look like an issue.
