Problem

I got an DLL error opening the Style Editor. How can i fix it ?

Solution

For Max 2014 and before, install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (select the language of your Windows installation):

Windows 32 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8328
Windows 64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13523

If you use Windows 64 bit, and the problem is not solved after installing redistributable for 64 bit, try installing 32 bit version as well.

In case of Max 2015 and above, install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package:

Windows 64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679
