MSVCR100.dll is missing and sysprep will not funtion propperly

    Question

  • I was attempting to sysprep one of our master image machines and got an error that MSCVR100.dll was missing and that sysprep could not continue. I was wondering why sysprep needed a dll file associated with Micrososft visual studio in order to run sysprep. My other question is, My boss states that if I ever need to get a .dll file that I need to get it directly from microsoft, where do I find this .dll without having to download a complete visual C++ redistributable package?

    Thanks in advance

  • That is odd.  But sysprep is a modular architecture, so it's possible the error is related to a sysprep plug-in related to some piece of software that you installed on the machine.

    This should be the latest version of the Visual Studio 2010 C++ runtime files:

    I am having the same issue. Just attempted to sysprep my Windows 7 SP1 machine and received the same error. Not sure why this would happen... I have built a few Windows 7 images and XP images and never received this error. Please any advise would be greatly appricated.

    This solution worked for my 32-bit Windows 7 image.
