MSVCRT.DLL errors - keep having to reinstall Visual C++
#1
Hello,
I'm using mGBA on Windows 7 64bit, and almost every time I attempt to start the program, I get an error message instead that the program has crashed.  Here is the text from the latest instance:
Code:
Problem signature:
 Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
 Application Name: mGBA.exe
 Application Version: 0.4.1.0
 Application Timestamp: 00000000
 Fault Module Name: msvcrt.dll
 Fault Module Version: 7.0.7600.16385
 Fault Module Timestamp: 4a5bda6f
 Exception Code: c0000005
 Exception Offset: 00018b23
 OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48
 Locale ID: 1033
 Additional Information 1: 0a9e
 Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
 Additional Information 3: 0a9e
 Additional Information 4: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
My solution to this right now is to run the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 x64 installer and choose the repair option.  mGBA usually works just fine after a reboot.

I've also run the system file checker (sfc.exe) and that found nothing to repair.

I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this specific problem, and if anyone can recommend a permanent solution to it.

Try running one of the nightlies to see if it's been fixed since 0.4.1 was released.

Thanks for the reply.  I just downloaded and ran the latest nightly.  It seems to have fixed the original problem I had.  I did have the emulator crash a couple of times early on with these errors:

Code:

But for the most part, it opens and runs consistently, even after a few reboots.
Thanks again.
