I have a problem with the installation of QGIS 1.8.0.

After finishing the installation two icons show on the desktop: Qgis desktop and Qgis browser.

When I click on these, it shows the same message, that there is no file msvcr70.dll in the computer and that it can help to reinstall the program (it didn't).

Thanks for any ideas.


I guess you have used the Windows standalone installer. This installer has a known bug when installing in a path with blanks, like C:\Programs (86)\.

Try the Osgeo4W setup, which installes to C:\Osgeo4w without problems.
