If a program you wrote can’t start becuase MSVCR*.dll is missing, then you forgot to ship the Visual C++ runtime…

Too often I see quesions like the one below on software that people distribute:

The Program can’t start becuase MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I am getting follwing error when i am trying to open Computer management in windows 7,the error is as follows ,

The Program can’t start becuase MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Where can i found this dll file, and help me to download and install.

The reason is that many programmers and companies still fail to ship the correct Visual C++ run-time.

Even for a one-off, you should need to get your installation set right. And writing stuff in a version of Visual C++ almost always means you need to ship the run-time for that particular version of Visual C++ with your application (though sometimes you can get away by putting the DLLs in the directory of your application, this is not recommended, as that way you won’t receive security updates).

User Marilyn O was so kind to sum up most of the download locations (I did a bit of post-editing, added all the non-“FamilyID” links, all naming differences are from the MS site):

I would install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable dll that is needed for projects built with Visual Studio 2010.

Download the files below depending on your operating system version. […] Check in Programs and Features, do you show that you have installed Microsoft Visual C++ … Redistributable? If not, download from the links here.
