    Is this written for 32 or 64 bit, and what's the min requirements (XP, 7, 8)?
    I tried this a few years ago and just downloaded the latest version.
    After installing:
    On XP it mentions "Not a valid win32 app"
    On Win7 x64 it mentions the mfc120.dll is not present.

      Sorry for all the inconveniences and thx for trying this application.
      These issues with x64 showed when I migrated the application to Visual Studio 2013 and made some mistakes in build configurations.
      To try to solve them I made following changes (from version 1.0.94 onwards):

      1. Added the setup project to the solution (currently only in GitHub https://github.com/jcampos73/DraftCable). You need a Visual Studio add in to open the included setup project:

      2. I added to the setup a prerequisite of Visual C++ 2013 Runtime Libraries (x32), although I will probably remove it cause it does not work in Windows XP SP3.

      3. I checked build configuration of main application (DraftDraw project) to Win32
      4. In windows 7, 8 you should execute application as administrator because it access the registry to read base directory
      5. When you download DraftCableX.X.XX.zip, execute setup to install C++ prerequisites.

      I apologize for all these problems and for not testing the program in several OS (XP, 7…), but at this moment I am the only contributor and prefer to show my idea to others. Fixing these issues and performing more tests I hope will be done when this project has more hands.
      Thx a lot!

      Hello I found this info:
      I will add Visual C++ 2013 redistributable x86 to the setup.
      I have checked in Windows XP SP2 and it does not work but I think it will do in SP3.

      Visual Studio 2013 C++ redistributables can be downloaded from here:

      • Windows XP SP3 -> I checked and it works. Unzip installator and execute ‘DraftCable1.0’. If you run the program and get ‘mfc120.dll’ missing error, go to installation folder (normally ‘C:\Program Files(x86)\CRIndustrial\DraftCable1.0’ and install Visual C++ redistributable ‘vcredist_x86.exe’.

      • Windows Vista, 7, 8 -> Unzip and install ‘setup’ that will install Visual C++ pre-requisite. If you even get ‘mfc120.dll’ missing error go to installation folder (normally ‘C:\Program Files(x86)\CRIndustrial\DraftCable1.0’ and install Visual C++ redistributable ‘vcredist_x86.exe’, too.

      • Windows 10 -> Not tested
