MSVCR100D.dll missing failure, even after installing redist
Posted on 2012-04-04
I have an application compiled with Visual C++ 6.0 which I am trying to run on a newly configured Win7 Pro computer (32bit)
I am getting a failure "The program can't start because MSVCR100D.dll is missing..."
First I tried running the vcredist.exe from Visual Studio 6 with no luck. Then I installed the vcredist for visual studio 2005 with no luck. Finally I downloaded and installed vcredist for visual studio 2010, and STILL no luck.. Each install I "ran as administrator".. I've searched the entire hard drive and that file is not found.
I suppose I could download it from one of those DLL share websites, but that seems like a hack. What am I missing here?
