[SOLVED] Msvcp140.dll is missing


#1

Hello,

I’m developing a plug-in for my degree. One of my VST testers on Windows 7 is getting an error that “the program can’t start because msvcp140.dll is missing.” They say that they reinstalled the file, but it did not fix the issue.

I compiled the plug-in on a Windows 10 machine with a VS2015 project created by Projucer 4.3.1, and the plugin works fine on my system in Ableton as well as a friend’s system running Windows 10 and Reaper. Any ideas as to what might be a fix?


.exe only works in my computer

Use the statically linked MSVC runtime. (This should be selectable in the Projucer too.)


#3

Need the SDK installed: Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015

It is in fact selectable in the Projucer, which is preferable so you don’t have to repeat this step every time you resave.

Beware it’s in the Configuration (Debug / Release) Properties, not the VS2015 Exporter Properties.
