Exception loading CEFSHARP.CORE.DLL

3

On some of our machines, we get an exception when trying to start CefBrowser from WPF code. I have been trying to troubleshoot this, but cannot really understand what goes wrong. The machines are all Win7 running 64-bit OS.

Below, I have captured a trace using "Dependency Walker" running the "CefSharp.MinimalExample.Wpf.exe". (I apologize for the formatting, I don't know how to improve it.)

It starts out, then turns into an appcrash with the standard text "Could not load file or assembly 'CefSharp.Core.dll' or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found."

So - does anyone know what to do next? I can't really guess!

CefSharp is built using VC++ 2012 Update 4. Make note there a variants for x86 and x64, so depending on your application make sure they match.

For anybody still looking for a solution to this issue, Please the simplest thing to do is to download and install Visual C++ 2012 if you are using CefSharp from Version 55 downwards, and Visual C++ 2013 if you are using CefSharp version 57. Please ensure to install the VC++ build (x86 or x64) depending on your application target chitecture (build). This took me a day and half to realise.
