  • Target version changed from Future Release - Nice to have to Future Release - High Priority
  • Subject changed from Grass launch error. to GRASS launch error (qgis 32bit standalone installer)

As a probable consequence, there is no GRASS plugin in the qgis 32 bit standalone installer.

I have the same problem on Windows 7 32-bit Czech with today downloaded QGIS-OSGeo4W-2.0.1-2-Setup-x86.exe installer. To add more information, the error message window says (translation from Czech): Entry point of procedure libintl_setlocale in dynamically linked library libintl-8.dll was not found.
The window appears several times during startup by Grass GUI icon and after dismising it the last time, the GRASS terminal, which is open during the startup, closes.
The said library file is present in the Program Files\\QGIS Dufour\\bin directory, it is not missing as it happened in some previous installers (just clarification for those familiar with the other issue).
Running "grass64" from OSGEO shell gives output in the attached text file.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

This issues have been fixed in the osgeo4w installers, Now is needed to wait that new standalone installers to be created from osgeo4w packages.
