Hello,

After many unsuccessful searches on the forum, I tell you about my problem.
Following the installation of Powershell Studio 2018 (SPS18Setup_5.5.155_100218_x64.exe) on a development server (windows 2012 R2), I often get this error message :
" Can't start the program because mfc140u.dll is missing on your computer ".
Especially when I execute the script. The title of the window is: "ScriptDriver64.exe - System Error".

I have already reinstalled the program as requested but, the message is still displayed.

How can I fix it?

Thank you for your reply.
Regards,

The error message indicates that the Visual Studio 2017 runtime is missing.
Normally this runtime is installed by the provided setup. There are conditions where this might fail or not be executed, as follows:
- PowerShell Studio was installed with the silent MSI installer options. Prerequisites are not installed by Windows installer in that case.
- Windows installer finds registry entries entries indicating this runtime is already installed. This might happen if there
was an aborted removal of this runtime, which could leave registry entries behind.

Check under "Programs and Features" if you have "Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable" installed. Both x86 and x64 are required on a 64 bit machine.
If you have them, they are likely corrupted and I suggest to uninstall them before proceeding.

You can install the required runtimes separately, by downloading them directly from Microsoft
https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/vc_redist.x86.exe
https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/vc_redist.x64.exe

Please let us know if this solves your problem.

Hello,

The problem was resolved.

Small note, it should first install the file vc_redist.x64.exe then vc_redist.x86.exe. Otherwise, an installation failure is displayed.

Thanks for your help
