Libwebp-5.dll missing when executing example .exe

Hi All,

I managed to setup OF 0.9 and Qt Creator 3.5.1 on windows 7, i can build the graphicsExample but when i try to execute the .exe file located in the bin folder i get an error that says libwebp-5.dll missing.

I’ve looked at C:\msys64\mingw32\bin and it exists a new version of the same file called libwebp-6.dll

It seems like i have a newer version of msys2 but i dont know how to change it to use the version of msys2 i have.

Can someone help me?



Strange… I have the latest MSYS2 package for libwebp and there is no libwebp-6.dll…
I suggest that you reinstall OF dependencies (scripts/msys2/ You can also try to install libwebp manually with

pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-libwebp

Thank you so much Oxillo,


I’ve been fighting with this issue the last 3 days, installing and reinstalling all the things.

I’ve reinstalled the dependencies as you told me and now i can run the compiled .exe, but the libwebp-6.dll is still there.

Anyway, I really appreciate your help.
