Missing d3d12.dll error dialog on Windows 7 x64 #37

The documentation on Compressonator x64 2.7.3568 led me to believe it works on Windows 7, however using the CLI version, it pops up a dialog "CompressonatorCLI.exe - System Error - The program can't start because d3d12.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." Since DirectX 12 isn't available for Windows 7 this makes the CLI version useless for scripting. The GUI version shows the same dialog. Otherwise the program seems to work fine.

Hi @onemanmmo

Since you are using windows 7. I would suggest you try deleting or move to another folder the preview 3D model viewer extension from plugins folder

Both CLI and GUI applications try to load all extensions in the plugin folder at startup
