4.1. Startup Issues

When initiating any SimCenter desktop application on Windows, you may encounter an error indicating a missing Visual C/C++ runtime library, as depicted in Fig. 4.1.2. This issue arises due to the absence of necessary runtime components that the application depends on for execution.

To resolve this, install the Visual C/C++ redistributable package by executing vc_redist.x64.exe, which is provided within the application’s installation directory. This step ensures that all required runtime libraries are available, allowing the application to start without errors.
