Description

I have just created a fresh install of Windows 7 (64-bit), and then Visual C# Express 2010 Beta 2 (none of the other Visual Studio 2010 products have been installed). Loading a project created under Visual C# Express 2010 Beta 2 on Vista 32-bit and debugging results in an error,

"The program can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

NB: There are a number of feedback items that mention this error after uninstalling VS2010, but this is after installing directly onto a fresh OS - it seems that the required file was never installed in the first place (maybe a 64-bit issue?)

Hi Andy, I am Sabitha from C# IDE team.We appreciate your feedback and taking time to File this issue. We tried to reproduce thsi issue in our lab, with the latest RTM build and this doesnt seem to repro.We tried copying the Project folder as is, from a Vista 32 bit machine after building and running an Application, to a Win 7 64 bit machine and tried running there without re-building it. We tried compiling the application in 64 bit or debugging it. Since this is not repro-able in the atest RTM build(which is internal), we are resolving this issue for now. Please feel free to reactivate if you repro this once the RTM is released. Or contact me at sabithar@microsoft.com for any questions. Thanks.
