MS Visual C++ redistributable required though installed

Post by Kleophant » Fri Sep 27, 2019 5:07 pm

When starting the program I get the message : System File required. ToDoList requires the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package to be installed.

After Installation of the required package nothing changes. I get the "System File required" message again.
The OS is Win 10 Pro 1903

The file it's checking for is "MSVCR100.dll".

It's not checking in any particular location, it just checks that the file can be loaded by Windows, but you could start by looking in 'Windows\System32\".

I have put the file from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100.dll to ToDoList folder.
I get the message "System File required" again.
The file version is 10.0.40219.325

Does it make any difference if you run TDL as an administrator?

The next update to 7.2 (tomorrow AEST) will make explicit the path to the system folder so let's see if that makes any difference...
