Error  DEP6701 Visual Studio Community 2015 Update 3

    Question

  • Hi,

    i have the following error when i try to run a project on the Windows Mobile Emulator:

    Error DEP6701: The directory specified 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Phone Tools\14.0\Debugger\target\x86\1040\DiagnosticsHubMsg.dll' was not found.

    I tried to reinstall VS and all its components, but this doesn't solve the problem.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Mattmsn,

    According to the Error message, DiagnosticsHubMsg.dll file is missing in your computer. Please check your computer whether the file exists in the folder above. In my computer I have checked the folder, and DiagnosticsHubMsg.dll file is in 1033 folder. Please refer to the following screenshot.

    Please make sure you have installed Windows Phone components. Please click start->control panel-> programs and features->right-click Microsoft Visual Studio VS 2015->change. And refer to the following screenshot:

    Sincerely,

  • Hi Mattmsn,

    Since this issue was more related to visual studio, I would help you move to Visual Studio forum for better support.

    Best Regards,
