Foilmaker on Windows 10 installation problem?

Postby stevet25 » Sat Sep 28, 2019 8:56 pm

Hi

I have enjoyed using the Foilmaker software on my old laptop with Windows XP.

However, just treated myself to an upgraded laptop with Windows 10 but it fails to install "as MFC71.DLL was not found". Any bright sparks out there who can explain what this means and how to fix it please?

For info Surfplan installs just fine

thanks

U need compatible .Net software. Foilmaker should list the .Net version somewhere to download and install.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for this decision.
Win10 is not an OS, it's a plague.

Have a look into this link https://fix4dll.com/mfc71_dll

Very good possible that this will solve your problem

tks

Kosta

Thanks Costa, but two seperate malware programs advise me that this is potentially malicious?

A program from 2009, that doesn´t install in 2019 on a Win 10 machine., Sure must be Windows 10 fault :duh:
