Nimbus Robot Watcher service fails to start with a 1053 error after applying robot_update 7.97HF8
In some case if you are updating from a previous robot, it will not install all of the required prerequisites as part of the installation.
Release : 8.51, 9.02
Component : UIM - ROBOT
Verify on the problem robot machine that the following packages are installed in Windows Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 x86 Minimum Runtime - 14.14.26429
Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 x64 Minimum Runtime - 14.14.26429
These can either be downloaded directly from Microsoft, or you can grab the installers from a known working machine that has them currently installed, and copy them to the problem machine and install them. On a know working machine they can be found in the following directories:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\vs2017_vcredist_x64\vs2017_vcredist_x64.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\vs2017_vcredist_x86\vs2017_vcredist_x86.exe
Once installed you should be able to start the Nimbus Robot Watcher service.
