I just purchased the Windows installer today (10 March 2023) to install on a hosted Windows Server (I needed the installer which runs natively on Windows, as the cloud provider, Paperspace, does not allow nested virtualization, which disqualifies Docker).
This is Windows WebODM v1.9.18 build 84.
I have a dataset (my very first one - I’m new to drone photogrammetry) which by now I have processed successfully both with Lightning’s free credits and with WebODM Docker on my own Windows laptop.
Download the dataset here:
Link 287 20MP JPG’s in a .zip. 2.77GB unzipped. All photos shot at minimum 75% overlap using DroneLink. Shot with DJI Air2S.
My next goal was to test more powerful machines to run WebODM on, as I’ll have even larger datasets to process in the near future.
Installing WebODM with the installer completed with no issues. I created a new project, added all 287 images to it, left the preset at Default, and turned image resizing off. After the images finish uploading to the node, processing begins but fails almost immediately with a “Cannot process dataset” error.
This error is occurring on a stock Windows Server 2022 Datacenter edition Paperspace Core virtual machine (a “C8” CPU instance, with a 16-core Xeon E5-2640v4 2.1GHz CPU and 60GB RAM). This server does not have a dedicated or integrated GPU (it’s using the “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter”).
I don’t suspect issues with this dataset, since as I mentioned I’ve already processed it successfully with WebODM twice before, using I believe the same build of WebODM (I did all installation and processing on 6 March 2023, so I used whatever version was current at that time). (On my laptop, I was able to process it only after I enabled image resizing, because 20GB of RAM, which was all I could spare Docker, wasn’t enough to process the full-resolution images). Lightning processed the full-resolution images just fine. I used the Default preset both times.
I grabbed copies of both the “app” and “pgsql” log files right after the error occurred, as well as the out-of-the-box node’s JSON config and can post them if needed. Task output is below:

The log doesn’t indicate which DLL failed to load. Is there an easy way to tell?
