OBS Studio Portable 22.0.1 wont launch

In hopes of a new screen capture utility becoming available I saw that OBS studio was released, so I downloaded and installed it from the PA Apps platform and then launched it, or what I thought would have launched it. To my surprise all I got was a spash screen and no program UI, nothing in the task manager either.

I dont know what info to include other than I'm running 64 bit Windows 10. Any ideas as to whats going on?

Run Directly

As usual with an app not running, the best first option is to run it directly... aka in local mode. That will cause whatever error is occurring to show. If you're running x64, that would be:

OBSPortable\App\obs-studio\bin\64bit\obs64.exe

Likely it's a missing DLL I need to add to the package. You'll probably get either an error that some library is missing or the app isn't valid.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Errors

As you expected these were the errors I received. Seems like missing DLL files.

"the code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

Test Patch

Please try this test patch on your machine:

http://downloads.portableapps.com/portableapps/_temp/OBSPortable_22.0.1_...

I've verified it's working on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 for just launching the app but nothing beyond. I didn't include the full MFC library as it doesn't seem to be needed and would add 30MB install size.

Note that this is a test patch and you'll be offered an official Rev 2 patch when it's released. It'll be safe to apply it to your pre-patched install.

We have action!

Appears that patch has fixed the issue, I ran two sample screen captures and all is well! Thank you for all that you do!
