View Full Version : Trying to install LW 2015-3_win64_installer_20150809

I have a PC. 64bit I keep getting this ERROR. I have re-downloaded from LW this three times so it must be something on my computer. Can anyone help me, tell me what to do. I am not that computer savey. I have attached a photo of the Error. How do I make this work. I have LW 9.6.3 on my computer now and all works well

"The Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (x86) Redistributable installer reported an error.
Please try to reinstall vc2008_sp1_redist_x86.exe from the installer directory or contact customer support."

Have you tried launching LW?

I've never had this problem, but it seems like this vc2008_sp1_redist is something that is installed with Lightwave. So I would contact customer support.

Files installed by LightWave 11.0:

uninstall.exe - LightWave 11.0
Sentinel Protection Installer 7.6.1.exe (by SafeNet) - Sentinel Protection Installer 7.6.1 (For use with any SafeNet security keys.)
vc2008_sp1_redist_x86.exe (by Microsoft) - Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable (Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Setup)

First thing I'd look at is installing the 64-bit version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable. Probably a newer version of it for LightWave 2015 than the one used with LightWave 11.x.
