I get a Set ThreadErrorMode could not be located in DLL KERNEL32.dll

Asked by Pamela Simek on 2019-02-05

I downloaded the program and installed it and when I try to run it I get

Inkscape.exe-Entry Point Not Found

 The procedure entry point SetTHreadErrorMode could not be located in the Dynamic Link Library Kernel32.dll

Any suggestions on how to fix it.
I run Windows Vista

Thank you

Hi Pamela,

can you let us know where you downloded the program (exact link to file), whether the installation process went smooth, and which program version you downloaded?

Hello,

I have the same error with Inkscape 0.92.4.

"Inkscape.exe-Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point SetTHreadErrorMode could not be located in the Dynamic Link Library Kernel32.dll"

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.

Thanks

Paulo, which Inkscape file did you download? Can you make a bug report if there isn't one yet, and, in addition to the requested info, also add a link to this thread here?
