Can't run Carbide Motion

Keep getting this error. I’ve tried re-installing with no luck. Thanks for any help.

You need the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015.


Unfortunately that didn’t work either.

I even un-installed Visual C++, and CM again. Re-installed Visual C++ redistributable, then install CM again. But still the same error…

Also, I checked my Windows system files, and I found the dll in there. I don’t know why CM can’t find it.

I also tried to install the latest build from Jan-21. No dice.

For MSVCP140.dll missing see: [33]

For more recent versions try: — note that it may be necessary to install both x86 and 64-bit versions.


Success! I had to install both the x86 and x64 versions. At first I just had installed x64, and apparently that wasn’t sufficient. Thanks for the tip, Will!

Hmmm…now after getting it running, I no longer have the option in CC to export directly into CM. Even though I open up CM first, initialize. Then open up the file in CC. Any ideas?

That feature has been temporarily removed pending reimplementation.

The new beta has a network version implemented:

  • (FIX) Updated code for “Send to Carbide Motion”. Tested with CM 526.

but you’ll need a matching CM (and to allow the permission needed on install):
