MSVCR110.dll is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I require to install Acrobat reader on my computer and get the pop-up stating that MSVCR110.dll is missing and to try reinstalling the programme to fix this problem.  Which programme am I trying to re-install? 

    I note that there are very many questions on this particular .dll file stretching back over a number of years.  The advice given is usually the same, and then the questioner often follows up saying that it hasn't fixed the problem.

    I am still having this difficulty.  I require to install Acrobat Reader in order to open instructional manuals.

    Surely this should be available on the MS site as it seems such a common persistent problem and must have been resolved by now.  I would welcome any advice that you can offer.

    You are missing one of the prerequisites to Adobe Reader. You need the MS Visual C++ Redistributable Package to install Acrobat Reader. Start at the top of the list > Restart the computer > and try to install Acrobat Reader. If it fails, move to the next redistributable package on the list. When you find which one works, report back to us so we know whats missing. I hope this helps!

    You can download these at the following locations:

    Visual C++ Redistributable 2012 Update 4

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679#

    You may also need:

    Visual C++ Redistributable 2010

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555

    AND

    Visual C++ Redistributable 2008

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29

    And possibly

    Visual C++ Redistributable 2005

  • Hi Notherone,

    MSVCR110.dll is the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable dll that is needed for projects built with Visual Studio 2011. The dll letters spell this out.
    MS= Microsoft, V = Visual, C = C++, R = Redistributable

    I agree with Brenton J.W. Blawat.Please check whether the Visual C++ Redistributable has been installed in your machine .
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features

    If they have been installed ,we can reinstall them to have a check .

    Best regards
