How to Fix MSVCR110.dll is Missing Error
We will show you several ways to fix it, but to avoid such inconvenience, you must learn the real cause of this issue. Microsoft has developed visual C++ package for games and application installation. Each year or whenever there is a requirement Microsoft updates their C++ redistributable and makes it available online or in their “Windows update” channel.
Remember, in a majority of the cases, the file goes missing is legit, but in rare cases they are corrupted and does not allow these fixes to work because it gets in the way. So, let’s fix it.
1. Reinstall The Program
At this point, you might be a little frustrated but let me break something to you. Sometimes software gets installed incorrectly, which causes the error. If you are facing this problem only on one program, then you should “Uninstall,” then “Reinstall” it.
Do not worry because uninstalling it will replace the old files with the newer ones or missing ones. The solution will only apply to the program that is getting this error. If multiple applications are failing, then accept the facts and move forward to the next solution.
2. Download & Install The MSVCR110 FILE
We have seen in many forums and website where so-called experts are asking you to download the MSVCR110 file and paste it into every program folder, which fixes but you have to repeat it for every program.
So, the official and straightforward solution is to download the original package that your Windows understand and can replace the corrupted or missing file. Download C++ redistributable package. There are few requirements,
- It works with almost every Windows version but the Microsoft has not mentioned Windows 10 in particular.
- But Windows 10 can handle it. If you have problems, then use compatibility mode to run it in the Windows XP (Any build version.)
Download the file now and follow the instructions provided by the Microsoft.
3. Antivirus System
If the is occurring for only one program, then we have already shown you the method and if it happens for multiple games and applications, then the second way is efficient. If the above two fails, then there has to be a malware or a trojan file coming in between the launcher.
If you have an Antivirus protection, then full scanning your computer can resolve this issue. Remember, these virus sneak into your PC because they have not been traced or they were able to sneak out of the radar. You have to update your virus definitions and remove malware or virus.
Step 1: Launch your security program.
Step 2: Go to settings.
Step 3: You can find “Update” tab.
We rarely have these issues, which are fixable with just one-click. If you are not tech savvy and facing such issue for the first time, then there has to be an invalid registry created, which is coming in the way. You can delete unwanted records, and CCleaner has the free-version registry cleaner, which We have been using for almost six years now.
Step 1: Download the CCleaner from the official site (Only 6MB).
Step 2: Launch it and you can find the second option is “Registry.”
Step 3: After selecting it, click on “Scan for issues.”
Step 4: Unfortunately, I’ve got no issues to show you further. If my hunch is right, you will have at least 40-70 registry errors. Just click on “Fix selected issues.” and that’s it.
We have been using this program for almost six years and currently, using once in a day keeps my Windows PC error free and clean. My PC never slows down like other users.
5. Fresh Installation
We understand that you have gone through a lot and it is an unfortunate situation that your problem has not resolved yet. The Windows conventional methods are no longer active. The best solution will be a fresh installation of your Windows PC.
- You should backup your files. (Create a separate partition and move all of the media, files, and pictures in it.)
- Repair won’t work so that you can go for fresh installation of Windows.
A fresh installation will resolve the issue permanently but remember, this problem can occur anytime. In case, it happens even after the new installation, then there is a problem with your operating system CD or ISO file.
Wrapping it up!
The issue is not major and we have provided you proper solutions for every scenario, which should resolve your problem within matter of minutes. Worst case scenario will be a fresh installation of Windows. If you have any questions or doubts, then you can comment below.
