I installed a new version of a piece of software yesterday.
When I went to start the program on Windows 7 I got an error message like this.
I’ll admit I had to Google for a solution as I wasn’t quite sure what was wrong.
I then found out it’s because the Visual C++ redistributeable 2010 package wasn’t installed on the machine I was trying to test the software on.
(Although I could have sworn I’d already installed it…)
It was quickly fixed by downloading & installing the required run-time files.
So IF you run into the dreaded “mfc100.dll is missing” error on your PC all you need to do is install the Visual C++ run-time on your PC!
The required files are included in this download.
Make sure you Install the correct version for your system.
- vcredist_x64.exe = 64bit machine
- vcredist_x86.exe = 32bit machine
I knew it was something simple that caused the error & that it was going to be a quick fix.
