    Why I cannot open tiff file?

    I am trying libtiff library (I downloaded the source codes as part of SDL2, but I test it separately). There is a test file named ascii_tag.c.

    There is a line
    Code:
    tif = TIFFOpen(filename, "r");
    and it breaks here when I run the program. Filename is:
    Code:
    static const char filename[] = "images/ascii_test.tiff";
    and the file exists on disk, because the program just create it and closed the file handler. The error I got:
    Debug assertion failed ... program name ... File: (and this is the strange thing!) f:\dd\vctools\crt_bld\self_x86\crt\src\fstat64.c
    line:64

    Why it displays this path? I did not added this path to project so why it tries to call this file? I have installed VC in different location and running x86 32bit machine.

    I already succeed to run test raw_decode.c where I used libtiff.lib and libjpeg.lib also here I used the libraries. I already succeed to open file there using
    Code:
    tif = TIFFOpen(srcfile,"r");
    and srcfile = "./images/quad-tile.jpg.tiff".

    Well I tried to use different path as "./images/ascii_test.tiff" but this also results in break. Where could be the problem that ascii_test.tiff cannot be opened?

    Using linux style forward slashes "/" instead of windows style "\\" back slashes?

    Re: Why I cannot open tiff file?

    No problem with path. This is perfectly OK. The problem is in the method. Did you ever tried using tiff tags? To read or to write them by libtiff? The problem here is that the tag data which were written are not succeedly read (back). Maybe it was unsuccessfully write or somthing. But I can open the image in FastStone viewer (just no image data in it. I don't know. Should FastStone show some tag data in Information if they were succeedly written? I can view the binary data and I see that the tag descriptions are in the file. So why the method fails?

    Re: Why I cannot open tiff file?

    From the debugger, what is the assertion that failed?

    For windows, the path should be
    Code:
    static const char filename[] = "images\\ascii_test.tiff";
    See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=vs.85%29.aspx

    The \\ are needed as \ is an escape char in c/c++ strings. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h21280bw.aspx

    Then why in one code the command works and in the second code does not? The method obviously handles linux slashes to convert them to Windows slashes. Otherwise the method would failed in both codes.

    Here is the assertion:

    Press Retry, look at the call stack, and inspect which functions were called that led up to the error. Since libTiff has full source code, you can easily see what is being done and the cause for the error.
