Hi:
While trying to update VMPlayer 14.1.3 to v.15 I got an error that I needed to find (browse) vc-runtimeMinimumx64 to continue setup of VMwarePlayer14 x64.

Where do I find it on my system?

OS: Win 7 Pro x64

Thanks, Don

Hello and welcome!

Which VCs are currently installed on the system?

VC ON SYSTEM:
2005,2008, 20010 PLUS VCCapture1.jpg

OS: Win7x64
SFC: no errors
My grip is: I can't tell which VC are NEEDED and the newest version of VMware Player asks for vc-runtimeMinimumx64 during it's setup.
Thanks for helping, Don

Try uninstalling all versions and installing only the latest one.

Hi:
Please send script to fix Scanfix errors with VC++9; the VC9++ I have is in Chinese.
Thanks, Don

This is going to be a really hard fix. Is it an option for you to upgrade to Win 10?

I hope not. I like Win 10, but haven't got a program to transfer all my apps and errata yet.
by the way SFCFix needs to updated so it can find source info on DVD and USB Sticks.
Thanks, Don

What I meant was an upgrade, so you would not lose anything...

That would likely be the fastest solution and you wouldn't lose anything by upgrading. I thought you wanted to try, let me know.

Sorry, Softwaremaniac, I tried that once and my brother nearly blew up, telling me Windows 10 Pro x64 was crap...had to revert to Win7x64.

I used some AIO packs to get all the Visual C++ Library packages, but don't think it worked well since I still have the errors shown.

Wish I had a program to interrogate what VC++ and MFC file versions I need to run a program...would save me a few headaches.

Thanks, Don:wave:

Please run the following command in CMD:

SxsTrace Trace -logfile:SxsTrace.etl

Then run your application that is causing the problem (reproduce the problem).

When done, press Enter to stop the tracing and use the below command to generated a text formatted file of the output.

sxstrace Parse -logfile:SxSTrace.etl -outfile:SxSTrace.txt
