Art,

I decided to bite the bullet and move to Win 10 after Microsoft announced no further security updates after January 2020.

I started with a clean install of win 10 and started to migrate my licenced applicati ons to the new platform. I downloade d the latest Gearotic version from your website after switching off a number of security features in win 10 which kept telling me the site was unsafe.

I eventuall y managed an install of version 3.17 and copied my licence file into the program's directory . All went well and Gearotic launched OK and recognise d my licence info.

I then tried to launch Vexx and got the error message that MSVCP120. DLL was missing. I navigated to the Gearotic file directory and manually installed the program VC_redist .x86. The MS redistrib utable program installed without error but Vexx still wouldn't run. I tried rebooting the PC but that did not correct the error.

Prior to installin g Gearotic I had installed a licenced version of  the Gear Template Generator program from http://woodgears.ca

Any suggestio ns to get Vexx working would be appreciat ed.

Art,

I downloade d both the x64 and x86 versions and installin g them did not solve the problem.

I tried the x64 version on its own and that did not work and I tried the x86 version on its own and that didn't work either.

Both versions installed and uninstall ed without generatin g any error messages. I have left the x86 version installed .

What do you suggest?

Hi Jim:

  Im about to release a new Vexx in a few days with a cycloidic gear module Ive added.
As the code has changed it may make a differenc e. Im not sure whats shutting Vexx down on
you but I do have 2 other reports of both gearotic and vexx not working in Win10.

 If you email me directly at support@gearotic .com I can send you an advance copy to see
what its doing. I can also generate debug versions so perhaps we can see where its failing.

Thx

Hi Art,
I was having the same problem.  I tried installin g your recommend ed .dll files but that wouldn't work for me either.  I eventuall y took my computer to a shop and they were able to make it work but unfortuna tely I couldn't follow exactly what they did.
In my CNC shop I have another computer that won't open Vexx but its not critical for me since I normally take code from another computer.

Hope you can get this sorted.

I wonder if it's an issue with MSVCP120. DLL either not being in the current executabl e path.  Presumabl y the official installer gets the file permissio ns right.

Is the DLL in the same directory as gearotic?  I'd look at both here (mine works with W10) but the CNC laptop isn't available atm and this is a chromeboo k so no help.

Kirk:

  The file is a runtime file from microsoft, Gearotic doesnt install it directly, that final
advice to install runtime does. At that time I think microsoft copies them to the windows folder,
and is supposed to tell the system where they are.

  Im investiga ting why this occurs.. everythin g of course works fine on my Win10..
