Known gotchas

New in version 1.0.

Importing the module

To import _FIDL_ into your own programs, use the uppercase form of the name, that is:

import FIDL or import FIDL.decompiler_utils as du will work, but

import fidl will result in an import error

Bitness mismatch

Getting the following error message:

"Hex-Rays Decompiler got called from Python without being loaded"
bitness mismatch

usually means that you are trying to decompile an x86 binary with the x86_64 version of IDA. The binary will still load and be analyzed but the decompiler plugin will fail.
