I know that MSVCP100.dll, is part of the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime libraries, so I have them in my PC too. Everything was working fine but suddenly this error start happening when I open my programs but after click OK 2-3 time, my program runs perfectly.

MSVCR100.dll Error

Searching over internet, I found that many are mentioning the below versions that I tried to install but got the below error too because I have the latest version of them and also Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Professional Edition.

32-bit: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)

64-bit: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)

Please resolve the following:
A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine.

I also tried to add this DLL file manually directly to C:\Windows\System32 but this file was present there too. Now what to do…???

  • There are later versions of the Redistributables than those you have linked to available on the Microsoft Download Center. These will allow you to repair your current installation.

    Microsoft maintain a support page with links to the latest downloads.
