Hello, I have a problem installing version 1.0.8. The following error message appears:

The entry point for the procedure sqlite3_open_v2 cannot be found in the dynamic link library sqlite3.dll

[The next sentence is ungrammatical in the original and therefore its translation is in doubt.]

Previously I had version 1.7 Wroclaw, which I uninstalled before installing the new one.

Thank you for your help.

I assume you're referring to qgis 1.8

A quick google search pointed me on this:

Manually copying sqlite.dll from C:\osgeo4w\bin to C:\osgeo4w\apps\qgis\bin DID SOLVE my problem.

I renamed file sqlite3.dll of (system folder) c:\windows\system32\ folder to something like renamed_sqlite3.dll. It solved the problem. But it might cause other errors but till now its working fine. You can restore the renamed file at any time if other applications get issues.
