My first time trying to get a PI working... Neat idea, pulling out my hair though.

No matter what project I build [simple or not], when deploying I get the missing coreclr.dll. What SDK am I missing? Any help is much appreciated. Once I get the environment set up I want to introduce my son to this stuff.

Severity    Code    Description Project File    Line    Suppression State
Error   DEP6701 : Bootstrapping failed with unexpected error: 'DEP6960 : 
Source file does not exist: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Phone Tools\12.0\Debugger\target\armv4i\coreclr.dll'.  HelloWorld(LCD)
  • I haven't had this one and my google fu is letting me down. Were you working to a particular tutorial or set of instructions when you a) installed everything and b) created your projects and, if so, could you add suitable links to your question? – goobering Apr 28 '16 at 13:13

I got it - it was a botched install of the windows 10 sdk. My computer died a couple hours into the install (took 5+ hours!) and I didn't realize it. Upon boot up it thought it had installed. Uninstall + install fixed it.

  • We are glad you managed to solve the problem and answer your question. You should have enough rep to mark this answer as accepted too now. PS 5 Hours is way too long? But glad it got sorted. – Piotr Kula Jan 4 '17 at 15:41
  • I guess my idea of install time is just unrealistic :) Thank you for the reminder on this - I do indeed have the ability to mark it. – John Hennesey Jan 5 '17 at 18:17
  • Thanks. No I actually meant 5 hours is toooooo long ! :) it should be 10, 20 minutes tops. That's strange. Maybe longer if it's downloading and installing – Piotr Kula Jan 5 '17 at 18:51
