MSVCR80.dll missing and can't install iTunes
Posted on 2014-01-23
Recently I tried to update iTunes (Jan 2014) and was suddenly met with a problem: MSVCR80.dll is missing and it won't update. I did some searching and installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x86) 11.061030 to try and solve it. This did not help.
I uninstalled iTunes, as I thought that the file, MSVCR80.dll, might be installed if I try a fresh install of iTunes. Well, that hit a snag. I can't install a new copy of iTunes either now, so i am iTunes-less, which I a problem, as I use the software to manage the music on my ipod.
I'm at a loss, what do I do now to get MSVCR80.dll so I can install iTunes again?
