I’m trying to test a project that depends on FFmpeg. Unfortunately, FFmpeg doesn’t seem to work on the Windows image — I always get 0xC0000135,
STATUS_DLL_NOT_FOUND. I tracked this issue down to missing
avicap32.dll, which appears to be part of Video for Windows (VfW), which is in turn available as part of Desktop Experience. Travis’ image is Server Core (1803 seems to be Server Core-only), so there’s no way to install a Desktop Experience feature.
Is it possible to provide an environment with Desktop Experience? I assume there are other Windows apps out there that relies on certain Desktop Experience features.
(As a point of comparison, FFmpeg works on AppVeyor.)
