Runtime Library Error

Whenever I try to open a pcb, such as the in the templet for the arduino mini pro, I get a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error.
I’ve tried installing this update - Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x86) 12.0.40660 .

What should I do?
I am running Windows 7 on a MacBook Pro

Welcome to the club :wink:

Thanks! It’s displaying the pcb’s now!

Link to the patch:

Much appreciated !

No no no. It’s NOT a patch. It’s a rebuild of a previous rc3 version. This bug has not been resolved at all. It’s still pending.


The devs have just modified the build process (see PR and it automagically fixed this issue (for me, at least).

As the version number is not different (unfortunately) from the previous build, you may rely on the installer size (the i686 version is 1 064 130 128 bytes long).

Hope this helps.

Oops… The x64 one is 1,063,756,768 bytes.

This release did not go as smoothly as planned, but we are really not helping ourselves here…

Thanks for the updates!
Seems the “stable” version was a bit premature.
The rebuild rc3 is working for now. Perhaps soon, there will be a true stable release.

I just installed this one, and I don’t get the wx error when clicking on the Tools menu in PCBNew. But, the action script menu is turned off in the build options.

EDIT: Interesting… Even though I can’t access the action script menu, the one action script that I have installed that adds a toolbar icon is still accessible via that toolbar icon.

Another odd thing, is the menus preferentially opening to the left if possible across the package (only tested in the project window, pcbnew, and eeschema). Here is an example:
See the menu is justified with the right side of the menu item, and the sub-menu comes out the left side. This feels backwards and I’m not sure when this appeared. I’ll try to find time tonight at home to submit a bug report for this unless someone beats me to it.

Here is the version info: (The platform is wrong, but this is a known issue with Windows… I’m using 64bit Windows10 Enterprise Version 1709 on this work computer.)
