After the installation of cadvilla 6.x.x.x the program can not be started and instead it ends with an error message.

An error message with the following content is shown:

Application has been terminated!
The reason for terminating application was saved to your logfile.

The reason for the program abort is a faulty (not completed) installation of the Microsoft program Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable 14.0.23026

The installation of the Visual C ++ runtime environment could not be completed correctly, because a number of Windows updates are required for a correct installation. However, these Windows updates were not on the computer at the time of installation.

Solution:

  • Uninstall it cadvilla
  • (if the 64 BIT Windows system has been installed, uninstall the package with the suffix x64, otherwise with a 32 BIT Windows system the package with the addition x86)
  • Install ALL Windows updates
    Download the Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable program package from the link below and reinstall it. The Runtime-Library Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable must be installed without errors! If this does not work, you may still try the alternative link for the program package below.
  • Reinstall cadvilla.

Download link for the package Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable

Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (for 32 BIT Windows systems)
Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (for 64 BIT Windows systems)

alternatively (if the installation of the Lirbrary with the above mentioned link does not run smoothly):

Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (for 32 BIT Windows systems)
Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (for 64 BIT Windows systems)

After that, cadvilla should start.
