I am on windows 10 64 bit.
I have visual studio 2012 pro.
after installing RackAFX, I could the side by side error, and fixed it by installing VS 2008 x86 runtime.
Now I get "The ordinal 7289 could not be located in the dynamic link livrary C:\Program Files (x86)\RackAFX\RackAFX.exe"
Do I need to install VS 2008 or 2010 express (and will that break my 2012 pro install)?
Some of my current students are currently running WIn10/64 and VS 2015 Community without issues and I have Win7, Win8, Win8.1 in 32/64 bit versions with no issues with all versions of VS (Express/Community/Pro).
In the past, errors like this have always been due to the Visual Studio setup. Ordinarily, this error would reference a DLL (usually MFCxxx.DLL) instead of the RackAFX executable. We have also seen errors like this solved by:
1) installing both the x86 and x64 redistributables (sounds like you already did that)
2) making sure your VS has the most recent Service Pack installed. This seemed to be particularly important with VS2012 and VS2013. VS2015 seems to be running fine.
I would not bother with installing 2008 or 2010; you might try VS2015 Community - which is free - if installing the latest SPs don't fix the VS2012 issue.
Hope that helps!
Yes, this was fixed - any version of VS that you use needs to have the latest Service Packs installed. In this interesting case, it was the VC2008 SP1 that needed to be installed with VS2102.
There was a special "situation" back in 2013 with VS2012 back when Win7 did a self-update ("don't turn off your computer...") that broke everything (not only with RackAFX, but also with anyone using VS2012...). See the post here:
For the record, we are all running VS2015 Community (free, fully functional, better than VS2012 Pro IMHO) without issues like these.
Here is the email from the original thread poster above:
Missing ordinal problem solved using this 2008 VC service pack:
Visual C++ 2008 SP1
So I ran the two x86 and x64 redistributables from your site, and then that service pack.
Thought you might want to know in case anyone else has similar problems.
I’m up and running, thanks!
