If you run a application and got the error message "The program can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer." then the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is missing on the current computer.

The Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable which can easily be downloaded on the Microsoft website as x86 or x64 edition.

Depending on the software you wish to install you need to install either the 32 bit or the 64 bit version. If you do not know which version you need to install, start to install the 32 bit version and if you still got the error install then the 64 bit version. On a 32 bit OS you can install only the 32 bit redistributable.

You need to install the correct Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable. If the software you wish to run require the 2012 DLLs it will not start with the 2010 ones.

You can install both versions on the same computer at the same time (if this is a 64bit OS).
