In certain circumstances, when using the PDF to Spindle utility with Spindle Document Management version 8.22, you may see the following error:

Clicking OK on this returns:

Applies to

  • Spindle Document Management v8.22
  • This issue does not affect any other version of Spindle Document Management or Spindle Document Distribution standalone


This is because the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable (32-bit) was not installed by the Spindle Document Management installer, and was not present on the machine prior to the installation.

This component is a dependency for a component of the PDF to Spindle utility
