GDIPlus calls crash on a PC

tullhead asked
Last Modified: 2020-03-10
Have an application in VC++ VS2017 that runs fine on hundreds of PCs.   I'm now trying to run this code on an AWS windows server and my code crashes when it attempts to call entry points in gdiplus.dll

I can see that gdiplus.dll exists on the server in windows/system32.   If I try a regsvr32 on it, it fails.

Also the version of gdiplus.dll on this server is slightly older than the one I use elsewhere.

What is recommended course of action?
