C++ 2015 error Version 2.2.1

Postby ethanb » Wed Jun 12, 2019 12:07 am

I uninstalled my Mixxx (Version 2.2.1) and went to reinstall and got the error message "Installer was not able to find Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable on this system. This is likely an installer bug that should be reported to Mixxx developers." I tried to install C++2015 and I got an error for that too "0x80070666 - Another version of this product is already installed."

Any ideas on how to fix?

I had to deinstall the 2017er. So I guess deinstalling all newer versions will do it. It's obvious you will break something else with it, but atm I just need Mixxx running.

Thank you for reporting that workaround. That provides a valuable hint where the bug is. Mixxx 2.2 is built with MSVC2015 (we'll be updating to MSVC2017 with 2.3), so it seems that having a newer version of the MSVC runtime installed than what the Mixxx installer has triggers this bug.

Same issues solved going to Autodesk site, where they give an utility to solve the infamous C++ library troubles for Autocad.
Solution of course is good for everything.....
A redirect to Major Geeks.com will give you a All-in-one utility to reset yr C++ setup the correct way.

I got the same error messages. (1) I uninstalled Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable. (2) I install Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable. (3) I install Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable. (4) I install Mixxx 2.2.3 without any error message.
