Where to find Microsft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable - 10.0.40219 to replace missing mfc90.dll

After recently uninstalling a Samsung program from Win7, I started getting an error message about a missing dll:  

                 "mfc90.dll is missing from your computer".  

Searching turned up a suggestion that reinstalling the Microsft Visual C++ Redistributable would solve the problem. So I downloaded vcredist_x64.exe (vs 10.0.30319.01).  However, the installation failed with an error: a newer version is already installed. Control panel > programs shows the following are installed:

Microsft Visual C++ Redistributable
Microsft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64)
Microsft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable - 10.0.40219
Microsft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistributable - 10.0.40219

I assume I need to find and install version 10.0.40219, but have only been able to find vs 10.0.30319.01.  Does anyone know where I can find the right version - or some other way to reinstall mfc90.dll ?

here you go:

x64 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26999
x86 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8328

if that doesn't help.. Try download Microsoft visual studio 2010 Express and Install..that should fix your issue.

let me know if any questions...

Or you can copy and past mfc90.dll from c:\windows\winsxs to the missing path.

@Aamer Mohammed - I tried the first option. No luck.  I'd prefer not to install VS Express, but I'll try that next if I have no luck with the other options.

@hopeleonie - Found a version c:\windows\winsxs. Silly question but any idea where I need to copy it "to"?

Did you check the Event logs?

uninstall from programs and features the applicable runtime and then reinstall it.

@David Johnson -  Good thought. I tried it but no change.  Think I might have been chasing a red herring though... more below.

@opeleonie -  Checked the event logs. I'm certainly no expert at deciphering those, but didn't see anything relevant ie references to that DLL, Samsung programs, etc...   But your 1st suggestion did force me to take another look at the error. The error message title bar referenced UA.exe.   A search on that turned up this page which says the program home directory is:  %APPDATA%\Verizon\UA_ar .  I copied c:\windows\winsxs\mfc90.dll into that directory, rebooted and the DLL error went away :).  I'm getting a different error now, but you guys answered my original question, so thank you.  If I can't figure out this new error, I'll open a new thread.  

Thanks everyone!
