ConEmu build: 190310 preview x64
OS version: Windows 10 Pro x64
Used shell version (Far Manager, git-bash, cmd, powershell, cygwin, whatever): Clink

Problem description

Clink now ships with DLL files called clink_x86.dll and clink_x64.dll, but the isUseClink routine in ConEmu's Options.cpp checks for clink_dll_x86.dll and clink_dll_x64.dll.

As a result, if the user tries to enable Clink in ConEmu's Features page, the "Clink was not found [...]" error message is displayed.

If the user renames the two DLL files to match the filenames shown in Options.cpp then the next time ConEmu is launched it throws this error from Clink: "The code execution cannot proceed because clink_x64.dll was not found."

In short, Clink looks for one DLL filename; ConEmu looks for a different DLL filename.

WORKAROUND: Copy both DLL files and rename the copies to clink_dll_x86.dll and clink_dll_x64.dll. Then both ConEmu's and Clink's filename checks are satisfied.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Install ConEmu
  2. Download and extract Clink v1.0.0.a1, following the instructions in ConEmu's Readme.txt to put the extracted files directly in ConEmu's clink folder.
  3. Attempt to enable Clink in ConEmu's Features page.

Actual results

The user cannot enable Clink without any errors.

Expected results

The user should be able to enable Clink without any errors.

Seems to be good. I just tested it on two separate computers, and both allowed me to enable and disable Clink with no errors. Thanks!
