The Registax 6 initialize error

In my previous post I wrote about using the Philips webcams with the Linux 3.0 kernel and problems which might occur.
Last week I had to opportunity to capture the planet Jupiter with my webcam and last night I felt like processing the AVI files using Registax 6.

I use Registax 6 on my Ubuntu laptop in a VirtualBox environment running Windows XP. Yeah, some applications just don’t work that good using Wine so I have to use Windows once in a while 😉
Okay, so I clicked the Registax 6 icon and… ERROR The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click on OK to terminate the application.


Looking at the Windows System Logs I noticed that some Microsoft Virtual C++ 9 (aka Microsoft Virtual C++ 2008) libraries weren’t found.
Registax was created with Virtual C++ and it seems that those libraries were damaged or deleted.

Downloading and installing the Virtual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package solved the problem.

Hope this helps if you ever stumble upon this error message.
