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.

Fix for: The program can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer.

    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?

    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.

    ***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
    C:\Windows\System32
    and
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64
    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..

      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?

    If the 2010 version doesn’t work you may also have to try the 2012 version as well. That’s what worked for me after trying both 32 and 64 bit 2010 versions.

    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.

    This did not work for me.

But Hexchat still says the .dll is missing. I don’t know what to do.

    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

    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 πŸ™‚

      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

        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.
