Resolving 'The specified procedure could not be found' when using PDFNet WinRT on MS Surface


We are current users of PDFNet SDK for our iPad app. We are now testing your WinRT library for a Windows 8 app. My problem is when I try to debug my own project on the real MS Surface, I get an error.

The error occurs in the method “pdftron.PDFNet.Initialize();” The error is:

An exception of type ‘System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException’ occurred in PDFViewCtrlDemo.exe but was not handled in user code

Additional information: The specified procedure could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007F)


The error you described would occur if you don’t have the Microsoft Visual C++ 12 Runtime Package ( Please make sure that CRT is is) installed in your machine.
