Firmware 4.34 c++ 2015 Installation

Post by geraldft » Tue Aug 21, 2018 4:30 am

Hi I installed the new firmware 4.34 to my Win7 computer and also attempted to include the c++ 2015 redistributable. The c++ update failed to install with an indication it was already installed so I ignored this error... I checked under installed programs which lists a great number of c++ updates including 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2017 but no sign of 2015. Maybe this is not a problem, as the later one may take precedence?

Anyway Kmotion and KmotionCNC seem to work ok but the PC VB net examples will not load. (I am using Visual Studio 2008) The error reported is this... "Unable to load the project file 'Dynomotion VB net.vbproj' " (then the path) and "The tools version "12.0" is not recognised."

So is that related to the c++ update or is it some other issue?

Thanks Gerald

Hi Gerald,

The example projects are for Visual Studio 2015.

Meantime I did get the 2015 redist installed. The trick was to uninstall 2017 redist first. Who would know?

So now you are saying the examples can't be run at all with VS 2008???

In the update notes you say :

"All Projects upgraded for Visual Studio Community 2015"

But you seem to be saying here that is a not just an "upgrade", rather a new requirement?

Note VS Community is now 2017 version. Does that also work?

Hi Gerald,

The 2017 redist was probably ok to use.

Yes the included projects are of Visual Studio 2015. Microsoft Visual Studio projects are generally one way upgradeable forward. To use all the projects as they are use VS 2015. If using VS 2017 the projects should upgrade with minimal issues.
