The procedure entry point GetTickCount64 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll

Today we received report from one of our customers about problem with our ORM Designer on WindowsXP Р32bit. Our latest version returns following error:

The procedure entry point GetTickCount64 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll

The problem is that GetTickCount64 doesn’t exists in XP system.

Solution:

It’s necessary to compile your application (and any library which uses GetTickCount64) with correct WINVER and _WIN32_WINNT defines value. List of WINVER values for all Windows version can be found here.

You can define these values in your resource.h file:

#define WINVER 0x0501
#define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0501

or add it to a project property -> C/C++ -> Preprocessor -> Preprocessor Definitions:

Qt Solution:

If you want to define these values automatically in Qt project, add following lines to your .pro file:

#Windows XP compatability
DEFINES += "WINVER=0x0501"
DEFINES += "_WIN32_WINNT=0x0501"
