When enabled, certain programs may meet such problem as a bug with msvcr100.dll. Usually popping up a message box that says that the program can’t start because file is missing MSVCR100.dll. This error occurs in applications written in C++. The library is an integral part of Visual C++ for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, without it, most modern games will not work. Reinstalling the problematic program can scarcely change something.
To deal with this error:
- Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010
- Download Msvcr100.dll for Windows 7/8/10
The first thing to try is to reinstall the package of Visual C++. The best option is to remove already installed and to put a new one. You can download installer for free from Microsoft website. Different operating systems require different versions of Visual C++. You can find out your version of Windows in control Panel->System. There under “system type” you will find the bitness. After the successful installation of C++ you need to restart the computer and try to start the affected program. Sometimes, the error still remains, then try to use the second way.
The next way how to fix the error when your computer does not have msvcr100.dll – download the desired file. This method is acceptable, provided that the library is in its place, but damaged. When the file will be in the computer, it needs to be put in a special folder and registered. Then do a reboot and check the problematic application. If the program can’t start, it means that the game incorrectly refers to the libraries. You can fix it by updating DirectX and .NET Framework, and reinstalling the game. These measures help to get rid of the error in most cases.
