GMS 7.0.2 and Windows 7 64bit Pro


Recommended Posts

GMS 7.0.2 will not run in Windows 7 64bit Pro unless you install the Microsoft VC++ 2008 Redistributale Package. I was getting the following SidebySide error:

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Software\Hydrologic\GMS7\GMS70.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.OpenMP,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

After doing some research on the web, I found out that a module necessary for the program to run was not included in the exe file. That module is included in the VC++ package. You can download a copy of the package from the microsoft web site:


After I downloaded this, the program seemed to run ok.
