Last Updated: 15 February 2017          For OptiSurface Designer V1.4 and up

Installed OptiSurface Designer and an error shows up saying 'Unable to Execute File', see error image below.

This error usually results if the proper Microsoft Visual C++ is not installed in your computer.  Please download and install Microsoft Visual C++ (2008) x86, see below for the link.  Be sure to select the compatible language to your Windows version, ie French.
