Trip, that link from Erdeslawe contains precisely the information you need. Read it again carefully.

Trip,

As Andy said, just above the list of possible installation files it says "MSVCR120.dll (2012)".

Don't uninstall any other versions of the VC++ Redistributable that are already installed unless you know for certain that they are not needed by some other software that you have installed, as those apps will stop working if they can't find a copy of the version they need in the location they expect to find it.

Hi Scott and erdeslawe,

I’ve got some good news and some bad news. First off, you (Scott) were absolutely right, I didn’t read the article carefully enough. Specifically, I didn’t recognize that the name of the missing dll indicated the redistributable package that it came from. MSVCR120.dll indicates 2012, which was not installed, so I installed it (with partial success, see below) and tried to reinstall Pumpkin.

The bad news is that I got the same error message. I looked in the windows/system32 directory and msvcr120_clr0400.dll is there but not msvcr120.dll so the file is definitely missing.

Without much hope I followed the instructions further down in the article and entered the following commands:

regsvr32 ntdll.dll /s
regsvr32 msdxm.ocx /s
regsvr32 dxmasf.dll /s
regsvr32 wmp.dll /s
regsvr32 wmpdxm.dll /s

This did not help either.

When I looked more closely at the system requirements for Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 I noticed that Win 10 was not supported (obviously, it was not yet released). Also during the installation, one of the three files (VSU4\vcredist_arm.exe) would not run on my system. The other two (VSU_4\vcredist_x64.exe and VSU_4\vcredist_x86.exe) installed correctly.

Would you have any suggestions for the next step?

Only thing is to hope the VBoxVMservice developers see this & have ideas.

Otherwise, try using the Task Scheduler idea to start the guest instead, as explained in your original thread.

Scott and erdeslawe,


I poked around a little more on the Internet and saw a recommendation to install the 2013 C++ redistributable. \

And that worked!!!

So now I can proceed with the main show.

My apologies again for this unnecessary detour. I very much appreciate your guidance in getting me this far.

No problem, Glad you got something working! I guess we'll see you back in your original thread?
