Fix for Alibre Design v26 on Windows 7


Alibre Super User
Running Alibre Design on Windows 7 is no longer directly supported by Alibre Design. The updater will not be able to download v26. You must download it yourself and install it. Alibre Design downloads are found at:

Installing will then work fine but running the program will have errors. Specifically this one.
The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Follow these steps to fix that:
Go to this github release and download api-ms-win-core-path-blender-0.3.1.zip
Next extract that somewhere temporarily.
Go to the x64 folder that just extracted and copy api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll
Go to the V26 install folder into the Program folder and paste that dll there.
For reference that path on my pc is
C:\Program Files\Alibre Design\Program
Start Alibre Design and it should work.
