CAUTION: DO not update your Cintiq Companion 2!!!

Postby Sesamme » Wed 4. Jul 2018, 18:00

Cintiq Companion 2, Windows 10.
I think it was due to my stupidly curious nature of a trouble-seeker, that I have decided today, right on the day of the final deadline, to click Update BIOS that Wacom Desktop center has offered, which followed by Windows update, which in turn has caused all my Adobe apps to stop working!
When I tried to run anything - any Adobe App, I got an error: "c:windows\system32\msvcp140.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. error status 0xc000012f "- the number in the .DLL file name varied from app to app.
Searching the web didn't give much results. I found a lot of people with similar trouble, but for different apps. After a stressful day of trying, I finally resolved the issue by completely uninstalling all the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributables, and all the Adobe apps, and then reinstalling and updating Windows again. It seems to work now.
So I created this thread to possibly warn some users like me, who like to wake the dragon when it sleeps. Be careful updating!

I can't find any information about what this bios update do exactly.
In some Israel article I found that this update fix INTEL core issues,
but after that - companion 2 performance will slow down
Do you felt difference?
