VB 2017 Programming

VB 2017 Programming

VB 2017 Programming

Dear friends,
I am new to VB2017. I installed VB 2017 successfully in my computer ,Windows seven. I prepared a simple project,and when I started to run the following error message displayed.
Error Code-BC37225 Failure writing debug information.Unable to load DLL 'Microsoft.DiyaSymReader.Native.amd64.dll':
The specified module could not be found.(Exception from HRESULT:0x8007007E )

What could be the problem? How can I solve it ? Please help me.

RE: VB 2017 Programming

What could be the problem? The problem is that you are running Windows 7. Windows 7 is no longer supported. It is obsolete, and a security risk.

How can I solve it? Upgrade to Windows 10.

RE: VB 2017 Programming

I run VS 2017 on Windows 7 with no issues. It is obsolete and also no longer supported but I do not believe that is your issue.

RE: VB 2017 Programming

Methinks this DLL is just missing on HDD, or not in the place where VS is looking for it.
Did you leave all the things by default during installation, MAVTCR? AFAIK, MS doesn't like it if one changes the installation locations from default to custom...
Another thing might help: rerun installation Setup and check all the nodes in the tree: maybe this DLL is there and unmarked?

What could be the problem?

The problem is explicitly stated. You pasted it here.

Have you tried pasting the error code into an internet search (google, bing, lycos, altavista)? That's the best way to get an instant answer. The internet is kewl.

Following that, have you done the basic troubleshooting steps such as determining if the DLL actually exists on your system? GIGO!

RE: VB 2017 Programming

Pardon me, How can I know that the DLL exists in my computer?

RE: VB 2017 Programming

You can do a simple search in Windows Explorer.
Existence of the DLL file (Dynamic link library) may not be enough. In order to use it in your app it needs to be registered as well.

If you've tried either of the suggestions I made back on 26th May without success, then you can also try the following:
