Getting 'A dependent dll was not found', how do I find out *which* dll?

    Question

  • Hi.

    I'm trying to run a windows store .exe on "local machine" from Visual Studio, but the program fails to start, and I get this on the "debug" tab of the "Output" window on visual studio:

    --

    'godot.winrt.tools.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Users\ariel\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\App2\x64\Release\App2.Windows\AppX\godot.winrt.tools.exe'. Symbols loaded.
    'godot.winrt.tools.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Windows\System32\ntdll.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
    'godot.winrt.tools.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Windows\System32\kernel32.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
    'godot.winrt.tools.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Windows\System32\KernelBase.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
    The thread 0x2618 has exited with code -1073741515 (0xc0000135).
    The program '[3212] godot.winrt.tools.exe' has exited with code -1073741515 (0xc0000135) 'A dependent dll was not found'.

    Is there a way to find out *which* dll is missing? I looked at the compiler and linker command line, and no libraries are referenced except for "kernel32.lib".

    Thanks!
