Windows 7: [Question](Windows 7)[Enviornment Variable (PATH)] VisualC++2015 issue

10 Aug 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 (v6.1.7601.23537)
[Q&A](Win7)[Enviornment Variable (PATH)] VisualC++2015(msvcp140.dll)..

I discovered using Process Explorer that MANY of the programs I use AND Windows Explorer TOO
are using NOT the installed version from M$ installer

msvcp140.dll (MS Visual C++ Runtime 2015)(v14.0.24215.1)

BUT a version bundled with TortoiseSVN
C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\msvcp140.dll <-- (v14.0.23026.0)(OUTDATED)

NOT FROM where it is supposed to be loading FROM:
64bit (v14.0.24215.1) = C:\Windows\System32\msvcp140.dll
32bit (v14.0.24215.1) = C:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcp140.dll

of course I checked the SYSTEM PATH variable...
and removed TortoiseSVN and TortoiseGit from it as they are NOT needed there..
restarted... BUT its STILL DOING IT! O_o

C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\; C:\Dev-MinGW\bin;C:\Dev-WinDbg;%ProgramFiles%\WinRAR;C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath
C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin
C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin

WHY, HOW, and HOW do I stop it?!

hmm..... ok.. I will try that...

New observations...
now instead of the TortoiseSVN its now using the 'msvcp140.dll' from
- C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\msvcp140.dll

stranger even is this dll... says it is Visual C++ 2017 (v14.10.25008.0) O_o

and the version of VC++ 2017 I have installed is:
- MS Visual C++ 2017 Runtime Libraries (x64)(v14.10.25017.0)

New screenshot attached...
AgentRansack.exe USING C:\Program Files\Agent Ransack\msvcp140.dll (v14.0.23918.0)(VC++ 2015)(x64)
firefox.exe USING C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\msvcp140.dll (v14.0.24210.0)(VC++ 2015)(x64)

Defraggler64.exe USING C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\msvcp140.dll (v14.10.25008.0)(VC++ 2017)(x64)
explorer.exe USING C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\msvcp140.dll (v14.10.25008.0)(VC++ 2017)(x64)
Process Explorer64.exe USING C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\msvcp140.dll (v14.10.25008.0)(VC++ 2017)(x64)

TSVNCache.exe USING C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\msvcp140.dll (v14.0.23026.0)(VC++ 2015)(x64)

LibreOffice Calc
scalc.exe\soffice.bin USING C:\Windows\System32\msvcp140.dll (v14.10.25017.0)(VC++ 2017)(x64)

Thermaltake DPS POWER.exe USING C:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcp140.dll (v14.0.24215.1)(VC++ 2015)(x86)
ONLY TWO of the above programs were using the system folder installed VC++ dll...
THREE were using THEIR bundled version...

that leaves three using other installs dll's .... O_o O_o

and the Tortoise SVN got added to the path...! BUT! its at the end of the PATH string so it should be finding the dll in the system folder or the local folder for said program... I removed it again...

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 (v6.1.7601.23537)

  • regsvr32 /i C:\Windows\System32\msvcp140.dll

error in pic below...

whats strange is this
WHICH IS (v14.10.25017.0)(VC++ 2017)(x64)
a copy of the VC++ 2013 dll which bares the SAME FILE NAME is NOT present even though it is installed..

maybe I am missing something whenit comes to the way M$ Windows handles the installs of the VC++ runtime version(S)

and I have VC++ from version 2005 all the way up to 2017 32bit AND 64bit installed..
ALL UP TO DATE lol always!
