Fix “The program can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer.” error on Windows

Wednesday, April 18, 2012 posted by CSch

What hides behind this name is the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable which can easily be downloaded on the Microsoft website as x86 or x64 edition:

32 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555

64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=14632

Usually the application that misses the dll indicates what version you need - if one does not work, simply install the other.

    My error window shows

    avgul.exe system error

    This program can’t start becausemfc110u.dll is missing from your computer.
    Try reinstalling the program. to fix the problem.

    If I reinstall AVG how do I know or can be assured it will not happen again. I used the uninstall on my programs control panel.

    I also have a conduit background container that keeps popping up after an uninstall of OBit- Advanced System Care product. I actually bought a russian anti malware and anti virus that world great. But these error windows pop up at start up and nothing I do clears them. No registry clean up nadda nunca nothing.

      Rim, you should be happy! For 2 days I’ve been working with technical support, obviously to no avail. Today I decided to “HELP” myself and found it in about an hour too.

    This did not work for me. While trying to install both versions I received an error message saying that a newer version of the redistributable has been detected on the machine and my computer does not meet the requirements for installation. But Hexchat still says the .dll is missing. I don’t know what to do.

    I’m having the same problem as Barbara Jordan and M. Burns, namely:

    “a newer version of the redistributable has been detected on the machine”

    How can my pc be running a newer version than what I just downloaded from Microsoft.

  25. i1corner says:

    Thanks… it works perfectly… Superb.

    I ran into this problem on a VM running v6 of Java and ASDM to manage Cisco ASAs. WhenI upgraded v6 to v7, this started happening. Reinstalling the Visual C++ libraries did not resolve it. Uninstalling v7 and rolling back to v6 did immediately. FYI

  27. Andrew says:

    If running 64 bit, and your dll not found and you followed all methods do this:

    Place yours emulator folder within Program files (your 32 bit one, not the 64). The program then references the dll in the correct folder :)

    Ran into the “newer version is installed” problem on my machine, followed Heriansayah’s advice and downloaded the 2010 SP1 .exe instead:
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/confirmation.aspx?id=8328

    Worked like a charm. Good luck!
