Unable to install Camstudio 2.6 !!

edited June 2012 in Support
Hi, I am trying to install the Camstudio 2.6, but it is giving me a rather strange error when launching the applicaton. The error prompt reads "Createprocess failed; code 14001 This application has failed to start because the configuration is incorrect. Re-installing the application may fix the problem"

I have un-installed and re-installed 3 times now, but unable to correct this error. Does this sound familiar/known? Any suggestions for trouble shooting please?

PS - I was using Camstudio earlier on this same computer, but had to format the drive due to a crash. However, I have not been able to install and use Camstudio again ever since.

    You likely need to install the Microsoft C++ Runtime Libraries SP1 for your machine.

    2.6b uses the 2008 version,


    while 2.6c uses the 2010 version.

    The CamStudio 2.6c in the Next folder at Sourceforge shows more codecs.

    You need 7-Zip to un-zip this:

    And the 2010 version of the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime libraries (likely already in your machine)


    Run CamStudio from the recorder.exe file in the folder. There is no installer for 2.6c

  • Hi Terry, thanks - it works now.
  • Great news, Irfan!

  • On 64 bit Win 7 Ultimate it installs fine, but it won't run. It says the "side-by-side" configuration is incorrect. I tried installing C libraries as recommended above, and I tried running the .exe from Windows Explorer but it just won't run.

    I'd really appreciaye it if this could be fixed as I have been running CamStudio for some time on my XP machine and I really like this software.

  • Morepork,

    Which C++ libraries did you install? See if the other one does the trick.

  • Hi Terry,

    thank you for your prompt and sound advice :-)

    It starts fine now and although I haven't actually tried it yet I believe it will be OK.

    Great job you are doing here and it is excellent software.

    thanks again,

  • Morepork,
