Texconv is a command line tool to convert textures to different formats.

DynDOLOD includes a customized version of Texconv to convert different texure formats.

It requires a recent version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages for Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2022 to be installed.

In case the Redistributable is missing or outdated, typical error codes are C0000135 or VRUNTIME140.DLL/MSVCP140.DLL or similar is missing.

Ensure that Windows User Access Control (UAC), antivir or other third party programs do not prevent execution or read/write access.

Do not replace Texconv with other versions.

Install, update or repair Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019.
The texture is not a valid file format or corrupted and needs to be converted or replaced. Look up the texture path in MOs right window Data tab to find out which mod supplies it. Reinstall the textures from the mod, DynDOLOD Resources or TexGen output, whichever it is.
The OS, UAC, antivir etc. denied access.
Texconv ran out of memory. Check this thread.
The file can not be read or written to. Another process or thread is blocking access.
If this happens on Linux, use an uncompressed texture format and compress textures afterwards with a tool that works in that environment ...
The file is blocked by another process.
