Studio 2014: 'dependency file not found' error
Thread poster: HLevin

I was working on Studio 2014 and kept getting messages stating "dependency file not found" which I ignored and proceeded to translation. Now, all of a sudden, when I click on Studio, it does not open and all I get is "file not found." I've tried reinstalling but nothing seems to work. Anyone could possibly help?

SDL does not launch/initialize Jul 16, 2015

Hi Guillaume,
Thank you for your response, but my main problem now is that Studio will just not start/initialize. I just keep gettting the message "file not found" and I cannot open anything - no projects or individual file. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program and that did not help either. Anything you could possible recommend that might help?
Thank you so much.

I am sorry, but I was posting the wrong message which is only "not found" rather than "file not found."

Thanks for any help.
