Cogs GO fails to start

<< < (2/2)

Is it possible that you installed the 64-bit version of the MSVC Redistributable package rather than the 32-bit?  Here's the link to use:

Even if you have a 64-bit computer, Cogs is a 32-bit build, so at runtime, it will try to link against the 32-bit libraries.

Sadly, It's an older architecture machine with a 32 bit processor/os so that isn't the issue in this case. Any other ideas?

admin:
It's possible that you may be able to get more details from the Windows Event Viewer.  On Windows XP, you can open it like this: click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event Viewer.  Hopefully it can give you some additional details about the problem.

It adds 3 errors to the event log as seen below. Upon a google search of the error, it sounds like it may be a manifest/linking that is missing in the executable. Please advise.

This definitely appears to be related to the previously-mentioned solution of installing the MS Visual C++ Redistributable drivers from here:

But it sounds like you've already done that.  If that doesn't work, I suppose you could try installing the previous version of that library:
