dll file already loaded

Postby F.Dutton » 02 May 2016, 22:14

A program I am trying to run gives an error report that msvcr100.dll is missing. I down load this file and during the installation I get the report that the file already exists and do I want to overwrite it, to which I reply "yes". I then get the report that the file has been successfully loaded. When I then try to run my program it gives the same error message that msvcr100.dll is missing.

Can anyone tell me what is going on?

Assuming you have installed the msvcr100.dll using default settings (install recommended) in the DLL-Files Fixer, and are using a 64bit Windows system, you have actually installed two copies of the dll .
A 32bit version to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\, the default folder for 32bit dll-files on a 64bit Windows system,
and a 64bit version to C:\Windows\System32\ .

If on a 32bit Windows system, msvcr100.dll has been instaleld in C:\Windows\System32\

If this did not help your issue, try placing a copy of the dll in the same folder as the program requesting it, making sure you use a 32bit dll for a 32bit program, an vice versa.
Ex. C:\Program Files (x86)\program name\msvcr100.dll

You can do this is in the DLL-Files Fixer:

This dll-file is a part of the "Microsoft Visual C++ 10.0 redistributable package".
If replacing this single file does not help, re-install the complete package.

If using a 32bit (x86) Windows system, install the 32bit (x86) version.
If using a 64bit (x64) Windows system, install both the 32bit (x86), and the 64bit (x64) versions.
