Windows 7 - Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

This question is not answered

I got the following message in my laptop with W7:

Interactive Services Detection

Message title: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Program path: c:\windows\system32\spoolsv.exe

This problem occurs when a program is not fully compatible with Windows. Please concat the program or device manufacturer for more information.

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

I have no idea what is causing this error and how to fix it. Help.

  • The error is very clear. The program you are running isn't fully compatible with Windows 7.

    See if installing VC++ 2010 runtime library helps.

    my Dells:
    Optiplex 3020 - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
    Precision M6300 - Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
    Precision M6300 - Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa / Ubuntu 12.04.5 dual-boot
    Latitude D620 - XP Pro SP3

  • I would also do exactly what it advised you to do ... "contact the program or device manufacturer for more information".  They will often have a fix or a newer version that will work.  What software/hardware are you using that causes it?

  • I am not sure, this is a brand new laptop with W7. I have installed 3 softwares:

    1- A new wireless HP printer which is compatible with W7.

    2- A Dell printer 924 (connected to other computer) wich drives XP are not compatible with W&, but I downloaded the ones for Vista (64bit) to make them compatible.

    3- An icon of Netflix in the desktop (, icon installer).
