I am glad that the developer switched to a better versioning scheme.

Well, you're right - my system is not up to date and I am not able to install the update, because my Win 8.1 is one of those that refused to install the big ("8.2") update. No problem, for most other users Textilosaurus will work fine.

Well, actually, the files from C++ runtime are really, there. Your missing DLLs api-ms-win-crt-runtime-* are indirect system dependencies which are not directly referenced by Textilosaurus binary, it seems these files can be installed with installing this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2999226/update-for-universal-c-runtime-in-windows

So it seems that your operating system is not fully up-to-date. These DLLs cannot be re-distributed with textilosaurus.exe, the only way for me could be to package runtime installers into Textilosaurus installer, but that is not really good because some users install portable Textilosaurus from zip package instead, thus, this is not a solution for them.

What do you think? I thought I could use different toolchain (mingw) to build the app for windows, but unfortunately, it is only available for x86 platform which is bad, since I prefer to deploy x64 binaries.

You are probably right, it seems that some files could be missing, I will try to fix. Thank you.

OK, let me check, bro.

..because I got a missing DLL message at startup: api-ms-win-crt-runtime-11-1-0.dll
This ist (at my knowledge) part of the VC++2015 redist. and sadly required by more and more applications. I only have VC++2010 on my machine.

zorro: How did you make such an observation?

Dependencies: apparently relies on VC++2015 runtime files
