Issue: 

- CA Plex - upgrading to 7.2 from 6.1
- loaded 7.2
- renamed application from XXXXXX - to YYYYYY
- changed file name and implementation name to new name
- when running new executable getting same system error twice
- "error  YYYYY.exe-systemerror - program can't start because XXXXX.exe is missing from your computer - try re-installing program to fix problem"

Environment:  

Supported Deployment Platforms for C++ applications

Cause: 

The Plex runtimes are looking for an executable with the application's former name.

Workaround:

(1) Right click on the CCDB72.exe file in your application's directory

(2) Select copy from the context menu

(3) Paste a copy of this file into the same directory (it will likely show a (1) next to the filename).

(4) Rename this copy of the exe to CCDB40.exe

(5) Run the CCDB72.exe file by double clicking
