Windows 10 installation requires Microsoft Visual Cplusplus 2005 Redistributable Package (x64)

KNIME 2.12.0 installed in Windows 10

I encountered the problem first with the RDKit. One needs to install Microsoft Visual C++  2005 Redistributable Package (x64).

Dear KNIME, please improve the search function for the Forum entries!


Hi Alex,

Boy am I surprised. I thought MS managed the backwards compability without problems. This is a big reason why I use a comparatively old version of visual studio for the windows RDKit builds.

I'll do a bit of testing to confirm, but we can certainly look into including the redistributables with the RDKit package, I think that shouldn't be a major problem.
