msdia80.dll on D drive ?

9 posts in this topic

Hy. After a fresh new install of W7 x64 and some software install realized that msdia80.dll is located on my D drive which seems pretty wierd.

Read a lot of topic by searching on google but nothing relevant.. any suggestions ?

thanks!

Sounds like something installed an old version of the 2005 C++ Runtime. Can fix it manually or just grab the updated version of the installer. The 2008 pre-SP1 runtime sometimes vomits files into the root of a drive too.. installs properly but doesn't clean up after itself.

that manually job doesn't work.. any ideeas why ?

 

To temporarily work around this issue, move the Msdia80.dll file to the Drive:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VC folder. Then, type the following command at a command prompt to register the Msdia80.dll file:

regsvr32 driver:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VC\msdia80.dll

Need to enclose the full path in quotes since it's got spaces in it, otherwise it's treating it as a bunch of different parameters instead of one. You also don't want to use "Driver:" as a drive letter as that's not a valid one.

Assuming C:, something along these lines.

regsvr32 "c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\vc\msdia80.dll"

Forgot to give it a command ;) RegSvr32 "C:\Program Files....." Right now it's thinking you want to execute that DLL.

Yes, that's just leftovers. That version of the installer was a bit wonky and was replaced.
