Android Question abd.exe - System Error

Not sure if it's a bug or my computer or just a user error :)

I running the B4A trial version as I am experimenting with the software... I am trying to connect to my phone via b4a bridge. When I attempt to connect to the phone, I get the following error: abd.exe system error The program can't start because api-ms-win-ctrl-locale-lt-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Like I said, the problem is probably me, or maybe a limitation of the trial version?

If not a bug, any advice is well appreciated :)

EDIT: restarting ABD in tools does not fix the problem.

I will be buying this software if for no other reason that as a Thank you for your time.

Also, thank you for download link I was not having any luck finding it.

I'm going to try installing on a different computer. I have gotten further along, but now have ABD.EXE appliction error: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.

Similar log as before.

I'm looking at my options. I assume (like usual) this stuff loves happening to me :)

I want to learn/use B4A. I think this is the most natural option for me.

Here's my thoughts:

1. I am considering a different device. Will b4A work on a 32bit system and allow for applications to be uploaded to the play store?
2. Will upgrading current device to win 10 fix this issue?
3. Any possibility it's my phone causing the problem? Android 7.0.

1. Yes. Note that you will need to use Java 8 and you won't be able to create an emulator that runs Android 8+.
2. Maybe. Difficult to say. I think that this is the first time that such a problem is reported so it is likely something with your Windows installation.
3. No. It is not related to the device (I guess that you tried to run when your device is not connected with USB cable).
