Author Topic: DON'T UPDATE Windows 10 for the last November Build !  (Read 1192 times)

Please be careful. Don't update you Windows 10 OS to the last build from November: Build 10586.3

Because it make SubstancePainter unable to start. Everything is OK with SubstanceDesigner

When you launch it, it will tell you that it couldn't load MSVCP110.dll and MSVCR110.dll. Even if you get the old files from your windows.old directory (win 8.1 Pro) and paste them into c:/Windows/syswow64 it wouldn't start.

If you'll have any workaround to solve this, please reply.


EDIT: Solved.

1___You'll need to uninstall any distribution of Visual C++.
(in my case distrib 2005,2008,2010,2012,2013 in x86 and x64)
2___ Check if there is still MSVCP110.dll and MSVCR110.dll in your c:/windows/syswow64
3___Reboot
4___Install back those distribution of Visual C++ from the oldest to the latest 2015:
5___Enjoy SB Painter !

Here is the link for the Redist Setup in x86 & x64:

No problem here.

Hope someone has a solution for your setup.
