In this article we explain how to resolve errors related to missing runtime DLLs:

GeoStudio.exe - System Error
The code execution cannot proceed because <filename>.dll was not found.  Reinstalling the program may fix this problem. 

Cause

  • This type of error can occur when you have use the Microsoft Software Installer (.MSI) package version of the GeoStudio installer. 
  • Using the MSI installer package requires the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable(s) installed on the computer as well.

Before You Start

  • This process assumes the host operating system is Windows 10.
  • This process involves actions that require full administrator access to the computer.
  • We highly recommend that you create a system restore point before proceeding.

Steps to Resolve

  1. Determine which Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable(s) installer(s) you need:
    • If you are using the GeoStudio MSI installer package on a 32-Bit operating system, you need to install:

      • vc_redist.x86.exe

    • If you are using the GeoStudio MSI installer package on a 64-Bit operating system, you need to install:

      • vc_redist.x86.exe
      • vc_redist.x64.exe
  2. Download the necessary Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable(s) installer(s) from the following link:
    Downloaded from Microsoft
  3. Close all running programs.
  4. Navigate to the folder where the installer(s) were downloaded.
  5. Double-click on the installer(s) to launch them.
  6. Follow any instructions to complete the install process.
  7. Launch GeoStudio to verify the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables were properly installed.
