Mach4 not running on Windos 7 32bit
« on: February 06, 2021, 05:35:38 PM »
I recently crashed my hard drive on my 2007 macbook running Mach4 on windoz XP.  I have installed windows 7 32bit and Mach4.  Mach4 won't run because "api-ms-win-crt-runtime-I1-1-0.dll" is missing.  A search has revealed thats it part of 64bit Visual studio.  Microsoft is not helping with updates for windows 7.

Is the latest Mach4 able to run on 32 bit windows 7?

My machine won't run windows 10 so I'm stuck.  It has been running fine for many years with XP but I'm worried I'll have the same issue if I can even find the XP installer.

We have old versions of 4 that are 32 bit. And right now we 4 is still 32 bit ... we will be doing 64 bit soon so we can have the address space for the monster gcode files people seem to like now. I remember when I would punch my tape and if I had a big roll that was a big program!

Okay enough memory lane. We have many versions on the FTP server. And see if an older version will get you rolling. Sad to say but XP is done!

Thanks for moving this.

I'll try the ftp sight.  Perhaps one of the versions has all the libraries included but shouldn't this newest?  Or at least post links to the missing libraries.

Success ! !

Thanks Brian !  The link was what it needed.

Also the Opera web browser I'm using vastly improved it's web performance so apparently many apps rely on it.  (Internet Explorer wouldn't even work on Microsofts web site, hence opera)  It probably should have been mentioned on the Microsoft site but I guess they would rather you upgrade.

Thanks again, ...   you saved me from starting over, probably with Linux!

Linux, we use that on the severs here. I use putty and ssh in so I get that sweet terminal window with a little midnight commander action! All joking aside with CentOS going away (stable versions) I don’t know how great Linux will be. I guess I am going to move to Rocky Linux when that is done for enterprise level software. IBM owns redhat now and CentOS ! I get you can use other distorts but we need the mirrored cluster with VMs and that’s a bit special.. moral of the story is the grass may look greener but you end up in the same boat  :( . Sorry for the long story but it is something we are dealing with for the code servers.

Enjoy and make some fun projects! That is what I am all about! Computers are a pain ;)
