Previous posts on this subject dealt with the missing VCruntime140.dll. My Inno Setup is building that file into the runtime and I no longer get warned that the file is missing. So I'm bemused that I'm getting the 0xc000007b error.
I'm using FM17 on W7 in Parallels 13 on a Mac to compile. The RT launches fine on this system. The VCruntime140.dll file is within the RT folder as I'd expect. I'd assume this was from Inno building it into the RT.exe file but the VCruntime140.dll file is also on the virtual C drive I am setting up the RT on.
However, when I try to use the Runtime on a W8.1 PC it does not work. I had considered copying the VCruntime140.dll file into the FM folder from which Inno compiles the RT but thought it best to ask the forum if there's another reason for the error and solution to it?
