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

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:

64 bit:

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

  18. Canada says:

    I just torrented Oblivion and the message “The program can’t start because Binkw32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.” I don’t think reinstalling it is going to make a difference, and I can’t find the solution online.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

  19. Connor says:

    I got this message when i tried to install it – “A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine.”

    But then it asked me if i want to re-install the current one again, so i did and hopefully that worked.

  38. Royal Sofa says:

    Excellent job. keep going!

  39. 2Sneaky says:

    ***FIX FOR WINDOWS 8 64BIT**

    if it says the dll is missing in windows 8 and you have installed the update as per the above post and it still isnt working, the dll is actually missing. turn on the folder view options to show all hidden files, system files and file extensions then go into the
    directories and look for the file itself (MSVCR100.dll). it will be missing from one or both directories. you now need to copy the file(s) from another windows 7 or 8 64BIT computer where the redist has installed properly. this WILL fix this issue.

    i have had two identical computers with the same updates and one of them had this file missing for no reason… bug methinks..

    1. Roy says:

      I’m having the same issue.

      Software won’t run. Message: msvcp100.dll missing.

      I have downloaded and tried to install vcredist (x86) AND (x64) versions. Get a message “new version already installed”
      Followed above instructions. FOUND msvcp100.dll in both locations.

      Utterly disheartened and confused.

      Any other ideas?

  40. Netsidas says:

    Thanx i run windows 8 64… but it was a 32 program i run so i need the one for 32 OS but i am happy now my keylogger work agan 😀

  41. Angel says:

    It worked for me…I have a Windows 7 64 bit machine & the 64 bit download did not fix the issue. I had to download the 32 bit version to fix the issue.

  42. Ramone Burrell says:

    Thank you. It works. Had this error by SQLDeveloper

  43. Richie Rich says:

    Thank you!! that fixed my problem with a Cisco ASDM GUI. I run x64 Windows 7 and the ASDM is x86, I installed the x86 version of the redist, and it worked (the x64 didn’t). Good stuff!!

  44. phil says:

    does not let me on any windows web sites can you help me

  45. abhimanyu says:

    Brilliant post!
    It worked for my system perfectly…
    A tip though- install *36 vesion even if you have a *64 bit version of windows…

  46. tsahi says:

    the trick is to install the 32 bit version on windows 7 64bit , and it works!

  47. Mahendra varman says:

    Hi friend,

    I got this error while i opened SAP GUI (sap logon). Seems some unwanted update has interrupted.

    Installation of the above said patch fixed my problem.

    Thank you so much !!!

  48. Dave says:

    Thanks, I needed this for Azureus after a Java upgrade. The x86 version worked like a charm on my old XP machine (Windows Media Center). Very much appreciated.

    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.

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

    32Bit: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

  120. Ben says:

    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

  121. 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 :)

  130. robert says:

    Installed both but doesn’t work for me …
    Any thing else i can try ?

    1. Aliezi Ugwochukwu says:

      Hi Robert, I had the same issue, this is how I solved it.
      I went to the notification panel on task bar, clicked on new updates available, search and select any update called security platform for Microsoft visual c++ ….. redistributable. and click on update.
      Hope this was helpful

      1. James Williams says:

        I tried your suggestion but, there was no update called security platform. There was an update for Microsoft visual c++ redistributable. I selected this update and installed it. This still didn’t fix the problem when I try to open the Autodesk 3ds max design program. It still says the MSVCP100.dll is missing. I’m at my wits end trying to fix this problem.

  131. James Williams says:

    I have tried every fix including this suggestion. None have worked. When I tried this solution it said the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable was already installed (both versions).

    1. r_faruk says:

      Definitely works. I’ve had all the possible problems that can occur and this solved the issue.
      First it says i’m missing that stupid file, than i tried to download the file but it says i have a newer version already, then i did this steps from the link, and it is solved.
      Thanks for the link.
