I recently just got myself a new computer, and I’ve been spending today getting my programs back on it. It says that Scrivener is successfully installed, and brings up the readme screen, but when I try to open the program, I get this error:
I have Windows 7 Professional Edition, which is what I had on my old computer, and it worked fine. I tried redownloading the installer, in case my old version was corrupted, but I’m still having the same problem.
Thanks in advance.
Sorry you ran into a problem! You should be able to get this working again by downloading and installing the “Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)” from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5582, then just restarting Scrivener.
And Scrivener lives again! I was getting a little worried since I’d never run into that problem before. (Which is probably because I’d had just about every update imaginable already last time I installed Scrivener.)
Thanks so much!
I had the same problem with my new computer. I’m so glad that I was able to find the fix on the forums! I don’t know what I’d do without my Scrivener!
