BIRT: GDI Error Using the Chart Engine

After starting up BIRT and trying to do some work with the Chart Engine, I kept getting an error saying “Unable to load graphics library [GDI+ is required]”. In order to fix this, I downloaded the GDI+ SDK Redist package from Microsoft, and extracted the files into my Eclipse installation folder (the folder containing Eclipse.exe). After that, Eclipse worked like a charm.

thank you -that did the trick! just another hint to add: the execute directory should be set to the eclipse dir too. otherwize the dll will not be found.
