    How to start Debug server? No Redistributables?

    AJDValien Community Member

      Hi everyone,

       

      Having issues with trying to run a Debug server for development testing. The server is not on the same dev box as Visual Studio, etc. It's a standalone W2008R2 box. I have the Debug version installed for testing but when trying to run it I get the 'side-by-side configuration error'.

       

      Did a quick search and just installed the 2005 C++ redistributables but still no go.

       

      So how can I get this Debug server up and running so we can develop against it without using our Production license?

       

      There is zero Adobe documentation on this that I have found and quite frustrating for sure.

       

      Edit:

       

      I did a sxstrace and here are the results:

      On the same server I have the Release version of 5.5 and it starts up with no issue. What's the point of the Debug/Developer version if it doesn't start? Do I need to reach out to my Adobe rep for answers on this?

       

      Thanks for any help/tips/pointers.

          Not speaking from InDesign experience here, but...

           

          The sxstrace indicates it's the VC9 debug versions of the C runt time DLLs that the server wants to load. I think that corresonds to Visual Studio 2008, not 2005. If you have a licensed version of Visual Studio 2008 you can probably find the DLLs you are looking for in your Program Files (x86) folder. The debug DLLs are not licensed for redistribution by Microsoft so I don't think you'll find a 2008 version of a runtime debug installer anywhere.

           

          In Visual Studio 2010 the equivalent DLLs would be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\redist\Debug_NonRedist\x64\Microsoft.VC100.DebugCRT .

            Just bumping this topic. Am I the only one that's having issues with the DEBUG version of InDesign? Can't get it to work at all which is pretty bad. Documentation is pretty sparse too.
