Description

Trying to use C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin\editbin to make a program largeaddress aware, running give then error

The program can't start because mspdb100.dll is from your computer.

This happens from a standard command line, or as a post build event. It does work if you run it form a VS Command Prompt, but an image should work from any prompt shouldn't it ?

Hi,

Here how I solved that, at prompt window you need to set the environment variables, just run the batch file below:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat"
For sure to get this working you must run editbin in the same prompt window.

There is no side-by-side story for mspdb100.dll. It has been like this for many releases. Please add the directory containing mspdb100.dll into your PATH.

Ahh, indeed, my mistake I was thinking of msvcp100.dll (stl ?)

I was trying to run it directly, no use of Path.

I hope you decide to fix it, in general images linked against runtime components should pick them up form the installed location (WinSXs?) and there should be no dependency on the PATH for them

For x86 (native and cross target) toolset, mspdb100.dll is under Common7\IDE, which is a different directory than where editbin.exe is located (vc\bin). I guess you probably only set PATH point to where editbin.exe is but not to where mspdb100.dll is.
