Problem: “The procedure entry point __gxx_personality_seh() could not be located in the dynamic link library libstdc++-6.dll.”
Repeat-ability: When launched from a mingw window, abe launches correctly. When done via Start Menu or Shortcut, a “dll not located” error results.
Reason: This and other missing dll errors are a result of cygwin being installed on the system.
Solution: Move MinGW before cygwin in the PATH
Step by Step: (requires Administrator rights)
r-click Computer -> Properties -> Advanced system settings
Advanced tab -> Environment Variables -> System Variables
Cut: C:\MinGW\mingw64\bin;C:\MinGW\mingw64\x86_64-w64-mingw32\lib;C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin; and paste before any cygwin entries
ABE program should now launch correctly from Start Menu or Shortcut.
Alternate Solution: Uninstall cygwin
