Static linked version? Dies while loading DLLs on my PC.

For some strange reason, the program isn't starting at all, it dies while loading DLL files. It even terminates before a single instruction of Camstudio's code even runs.
I suspect that Microsoft's Visual C++ CRT library might be responsible for this, it's given me nothing but problems.
Could you perhaps build a static linked version of the program, so I can see if that will run correctly?


  • The problem with that is the fact that CamStudio has been developed using Visual Studio, which does not apparently create such compiles. Also, version 2.6b uses the MS C++ libraries from 2008, while the latest 2.6c uses the libraries from 2010 (both 32-bit versions). We are about to release a new bug-fix to 2.6c. Perhaps that will be compiled to not require the runtime libraries, but I do not know at this point.

    Here are the links to the runtime libraries you'd need, anyway:

    2008 version for 2.6b https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5582
    2010 version for 2.6c https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555

    Let me know how you fare if you reinstall either or both of those.
