Hello fellow Jucers,
I’m a total noob here… I’m a professional web dev/music & audio enthusiast who thought he’d give developing a few VST plugins a shot. Seems like a lot of fun…
Unfortunately after an entire day of fiddling, I can’t seem to get even the “HelloWorld” example project to launch on my machine. (Windows 7.) … It’s quite frustrating!
The build seems to be successful in projucer, but upon attempted “Launch Application” I receive the following error:
“The program can’t start because api-ms-win-core-winrt-string-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”
Naturally I searched the error on google, and it seems that is part of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015…
I’m using Visual Studio Community 15… and when I try to download/reinstall from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145 it tells me I’ve already got it installed. ;(
ANY help would be greatly appreciated. I’m wanting to dive in and try to play with / reverse engineer some of the examples! But this is seriously holding me up!.
Thanks in advance.
