Sometimes when we run a software on windows we get a DLL error. Which says something like this:
The Program can’t start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
In this article, I am going to discuss why this error occurs and also how you can fix this error permanently.
The MSVCR110.dll file is a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable DLL which is needed for programs built with Visual Studio 2011.
The DLL letters of MSVCR110.dll spell this out.
MS = Microsoft
V = Visual
C = C++
R = Redistributable
So, to solve this error, you need to download and install the redistributable software, which can easily be downloaded from the given links below:
Before going further you need to know your system architecture. Whether your computer is running a 32 bit or 64 bit OS.
I know that you all are aware of your system architecture, but still for those who don’t know or if you are not sure about your system architecture:
First, you need to right-click on “My Computer” icon on your desktop and click Properties, Your system architecture will be listed next to “System Type“.
Now that you know your OS architecture, download Microsoft redistributable package from the links given below and install it on your PC.
For Windows 32 bit OS:
For Windows 64 bit OS:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)
Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 (File name: vcredist_x64.exe)
