debug build with vc++ runtime wont work on machine without visual studio? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to debug a metro app in C# for the first time on a remote machine and having issues. I have an app with a native dependency (sqlite3.dll) and I have added a reference to the C++ Runtime Package. Now everything is working correctly locally and in the simulator, but when I try to deploy a debug release to a tablet that doesnt have visual studio installed I get an exception loading sqlite3.dll:

    Unable to load DLL 'sqlite3': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

    If i create a release package and install it manually on the tablet using powershell everything works fine. Whats the best way to get to the root of this problem?

  • Since the error is that SQLite couldn't be found the first thing I would do is to make sure that it is installed in your appx package.

  • Its there and it works in release mode, I also see the file on the file system as part of the installation files.

  • Hi,

    any news for this topic?

    I have the same issue, but I am using the C++ runtime package in my app because it is needed by the bing map control.
