Installation problem - Win10 - "Unable to register the DLL..."

Question

I download, extract, and install Sonar Platinum fine until I try to open it. Then I see this:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=17p5SYkoRzrGZAErQmqAMUfSXtmFe-ZFJ  (Image also attached)

If I retry it fails, if I skip it it goes to the next dll and every single one after that, and abort takes me back to the beginning. I can't get the install to finalize ever.

Been using Cakewalk since version 6 and have 8.5 plat I can install from disc but this is just frustrating. What am I missing? (I ran Command Center as admin also - same deal)

Thanks - I hope someone can help!

Given that it's the shared plugins that are giving the problem, it may be that you need an earlier VS redistributable.

Some of the shared components haven't been recompiled for years - long before VS2015 was around.

Try installing VS2013 redist: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=40784

You could even try the VS2012 redist: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=30679

I doubt if you'll need it, but here's the VS2010 redist https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=5555

Exit code 3 means could not LoadLibrary.

This normally means that the DLL file is corrupt.

It could be a security thing, but running as Admin should negate this.

Have you got any virus scanners running? Try disabling them.

Failing that, try deleting the download files and re-installing  (you can find the Download Path by pressing CCC's settings button on the top right, and clicking on the paths tab).

I am running as admin as I said. I did delete the install downloads and tried again but the same issue. I also disabled windows defender. no luck.

So I tried all this. 

Windows 10 Pro 64bit is up to date

A newer version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 is already installed to that installation failed properly.

Rerunning the installation from the directory bypassing CCC resulted in the same error registering DLLs.

 

Reboot, tried again, same.

 

ARRRGH!

I found another solution:
Uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2015, 2013... 

Restart your PC, then, Install Cakewalk again.

There will be no problems during the installation.

When you open the program, Cakewalk, an error may appear... 

If it is about a missing .dll you can download and install it manually in the program folder (right click on the program icon and open file location, copy and paste the .dll). 

"Example: Download VCRUNTIME140_1.dll, copy it... Go to C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core and paste the .dll"

After installing the .dll, you can open the program.

You can install Microsoft Visual C++ again.

 

Sorry for the mistakes, my English isn't very good...

Ran into this issue today (7/24/2020) - . Microsoft now includes C++ redist 2015-2019 in a single installer and it  fixed it for me: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads
