Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error with VideoLan

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

On my Windows Vista I have this kind of errors, but the most recent is one from VLC Player, and now the player is not working at all. Can anyone help me please with these kinds of errors ? How can I prevent them to appear in the future ?

Thank you experts !

Verify if the program no longer works and is throwing the same error. First, try running the media player as administrator to give it full privilege. Right-click on the VLC media player shortcut and select Properties. Select Compatibility tab then check “Run this program as an administrator” and then click OK. Start VLC media player again and see if it works.

If it doesn’t work, reinstall the media player. Uninstall VLC media player then click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then Disk Cleanup. Select drive C then click OK. Check “Setup log” and “Temporary files”, click OK, and then click Delete Files. Restart the computer and then install the application back. See if it works.

In case a different problem occurs, try updating to the latest version. Download and install VLC media player 2.1.5 for Windows. It requires Windows 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows 2008 Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2 and up, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Since you are using Windows Vista, make sure you have Service Pack 1.

If you have x86 Windows Vista, download Windows Vista Service Pack 1 x86 [KB936330]. If you have x64 Windows Vista, download Windows Vista Service Pack 1 x64 [KB936330].
