ERROR: could not load library "libumfpack"



Today I went after a long time compiling the DLL and got the following error.

LoadError("sysimg.jl",344,LoadError("sparse/sparse.jl",42,LoadError("sparse\\umfpack.jl",75,ErrorException("error compiling anonymous: could not load library \"libumfpack\"\nThe specified module could
 not be found.\r\n"))))

Before that (3 weeks back), I had no problems.
I have version 0.5.1 and OS Windows 8.1.
Where is the problem, please?


The problem is here:

Try loading libumfpack from plain Julia instead of through the custom sysimg build. If that works, then there’s probably a PATH or dependency issue. Use DependencyWalker or other similar tools to debug.
