Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Hello,

 

I've searched online and I'm unable to find a suitable answer. When I try and run the MSFT free Network Assessment Tool it fails. I've tried on a fully patched Windows 10 (Home) and a fully patched Windows 7 Enterprise system. (Both x64). Does anyone have any ideas or can point me in the right direction?

 

This is what happens:

C:\Skype Operations Framework\Network Assessment Tool>NetworkAssessmentTool.exe
Skype for Business - Network Assessment Tool

Initializing audio call.

Remote IP address: 13.107.8.20
Audio file used: Tone.wma
Audio call duration: 17 s
Received audio file: ReceivedAudioFile.wma
Num iterations: 1
Call interval: 5 s
Results File: results.tsv

***************
Starting new call
Iteration 1 / 1

Audio call started. Waiting for call to end...
Call should end shortly after configured duration of 17 s.

Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Rtc.Internal.Media.dll'
or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found.

Thanks,

Richard

RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Thanks Thomas. I previously found that article but all the patches say they're for Server Windows 8.1 and/or Server 2012. I'm seeing this on Windows 7 and Windows 10 that say they're fully updated. Is it recommended to try the patches in the order listed on Windows 7 and 10?

RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Good point. One requirement that I'm aware of is the C++ Redist (x86) here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145 I would recommend to start with that one. hth, thomas

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

 

We found installing SfB Basic MSI client (not click to run) resolved this issue on some windows 7 machines, might be worth a go

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Thanks Thomas. I checked the C++ and it was already installed. I went ahead and tried a "repair" but I still had a problem on my Windows 7 machine. (Did not try on the Windows 10.)

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Tom, I was unable to find the SfB Basic .msi client. (Didn't spend too much time looking...) I did however download the .exe for my Windows 10 system. (Did not do it for Windows 7 because it is my work computer running SfB Enterprise.)

It actually fixed the problem on Windows 10! It works now which is good news. I'm assuming it would work for Windows 7 but I'd probably break something if I installed it over SfB Enterprise.

What was interesting is I found my laptop vendor, Toshiba, had installed MS Office 32-bit on my 64-bit machine so I had to use the 32-bit SfB basic client.

Thanks again to both you and Thomas!

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Richard, can you confirm the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)" https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555 was already insatlled?

 

I was told by the team that this should fix the issue.

 

Thanks,

thomas

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Here is SfB Basic, this is not the best answer, but try installing and I think it will work:

 

tom.qa/sfbbasic

 

I think the x86 version should do it

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Which version of the VCREDIST tool did you install?

the X64 or the X86 one?

 

you must make sure to NOT install the X64 and DO install the X86 one..

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Hi Korneel

 

I installed the X64 version of VCREDIST as I am running it on windows X64. 

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Hi Ibrahim;

 

I understand. please uninstall the X64 version and install the X86 version.

the requirements for this tool are the X86 version of the VCREDIST..

Re: RE: Need help with SfB Network Assessment Tool

Many thanks Korneel

 

In uninstalleld the X64 version and installed the X86 version. The tool is now running well.
