You are trying to import an IGES or STEP file into Gambit 2.4.6 and you either receive this error:
The application failed to initialize properly.
Or another error about a missing MSVCR80.DLL or other Microsoft Library.
Resolution: Install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
Go to Control Panel, Add Remove Programs and see if you have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 installed. If not download it and install it and see if it address the issue.
Question: I see that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 is available from Microsoft. Can I install that version instead?
Answer: I would install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and then if you wish install version 3.0 as having multiple version of .NET Framework will not harm your system and it is not determined if 3.0 will address this issue.
