I just installed and updated Win 11 and can't get Input Director to complete installation.

It freezes at "Failed to install Input Director's Window Service"

If I try to run it after the failed installation it errors - The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found.  Reinstalling the program my fix the problem.

I've noticed previous other solutions were to install the vcredist but that's not working.

msvcp140.dll  is in my system32 folder but I suspect the issue is that Input Director is trying to install an old version or doesn't recognize a newer version?

I've tried running the vcredist that's included in the Input Director folder -- Error 0x80070666: Cannot install a product when a newer version is installed.

I've downloaded and run the latest vcredist  for Visual Studio 15 thru 22 -  v14.32.3126

I've downloaded and run the latest vcredist for Visual Studio 2013 - 12.0.40664.0

I've closed all other apps, disabled my anti-virus and always run as admin.

Any advice?

Shane promptly got back to my bug report.  Solution was to also install the x86 vcredist and not just the x64 one.  Installed and working fine now!
