A French user has reported (baffling to me) crashes on first launch of OpenCpn
(both stable 2.3.1 and beta 606) after installation
The install log doesn't seem to report anything fishy (see file)
The ProgramData opencpn
folder is there but empty
The error message when crashing is (unfortunately) in French
(from Windows I suppose ?)
"l'application n'a pu démarrer car sa configuration côte à côte est incorrecte."
which roughly translates as
'This application couldn't start because its side-by-side configuration is not correct'
He is seeking help through me...
PS Googling seems to point out towards vc files from vcredist_x86.exe
