I would watch out for these dlls in the directory where your heidisql.exe is located. Normally C:\Program Files\HeidiSQL\

I reinstalled the program, updated to HeidiSQL 10.3.0.5895 64 Bit, the problem remains. how can this be fixed?

ftn's profile image ftn posted 2 months ago Permalink

this problem was due to the lack of a Visual C++ Redistributable Package

You have all required dlls in C:\Program Files\HeidiSQL\ . Are you sure you are starting heidisql.exe from there?

Probably a Windows privilege issue, which you can test when running heidisql.exe as administrator.

Running it from the installer in 64bit mode works here:

Oh my reply came a few seconds after yours.

Glad you fixed it.

I already have a hint to that VC runtime in the code, but that only shows up if libpq is somehow incompatible, not if it has a dependency error. I should show the message in all error cases.
