manjinders asked 4 months ago

I read some where APDFL do not work without visual studio. I need to publish my webapi to win server 2012 R2 64 bit. Client do not allow us to install visual studio on servers.
Is there any way to run it without visual studio installed on server.
Right now I am trying but getting this error
“Could not load file or assembly ‘mfcm140u.DLL’ or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found.”

Please reply.

You need Visual Studio to build a C# application, but Visual Studio is not required to be installed on a deployment machine such as a production server.  The application will require the Microsoft runtimes, however, that come with Visual Studio. Those and the other SDK components can be found in the DotNET\Binaries folder where you unpacked the Adobe PDF Library SDK. A good overview of the required and optional components can be found here:
