TurboLister crashes caused by C++ update not installed

No primary category set

I’m one of those remarkable people who have never had a problem with TurboLister – well that was until this week when it decided to repeatedly crash.

There was no logical explanation why it continued to work perfectly on all other computers, the only difference being the computer refusing to work was running Windows Vista. In the end as a test TurboLister was updated on another Vista PC and that gave a clue to the problem, during the TurboLister update a new version of Microsoft C++ was installed.

On the bugged PC, TurboLister updates had run but C++ wasn’t installed during the update process – that was the clue needed to fixing TurboLister. Manually downloading C++ and installing didn’t work, but when C++ was totally uninstalled and TurboLister updated again it finally triggered the C++ download.

If you’re having problems with TurboLister crashing it might just be C++ that’s causing the problems. Try uninstalling C++ and then updating TurboLister and it could cure an unreliable installation.

  1. You probably want to clarify you are referring to the “Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package” otherwise some people might confuse that with the Microsoft Visual C++ language or think they must buy Visual Studio for several hundred dollars.

    I often have this problem, although one thing i did and so far seems to work okay and works around it. If you are on Vista or anything later than XP any application developed would benefit from running in XP compatability mode.

    Try this, right mouse click over the turbo lister shortcut. Select properties, compatibility tab when you see the compatability tab, check the box and change it to run in xo service pack 2.Try it again.

    This way it will ensure that the application runs in a mode that pre-dates the C++ updates.

    Geeky i know, but it worked for me.
