It is very irritating when you are trying to launch Battlefield 4 or Need For Speed Rivals, but it is not possible because there appears a msvcp110.dll file missing error. The mistake can take place in Windows 8, Windows 7 and also right after updating to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

The most common thing most of the users do after seeing this mistake has arisen is looking for a msvcp110.dll missing file to download and usually they get to the websites that are considered to be of quality and unreliable. Make sure you download this library only from the reputable resource or get is a component of an update from proven microsoft official website.

How to Download a msvcp110.dll file from the Microsoft Website?

The missing msvcp110.dll file is a component of the Microsoft Visual Studio component (the extended Visual C ++ package for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4) which can be downloaded completely free from a reliable source -- the Microsoft website

Just load the fitter, install necessary components and reboot. On the download you will need to choose the version of the component to download (x86 or x64), and the setup will establish after the download is finished.

Important: if you have a 64-bit system, then it is necessary to establish both versions packages at once -- x86 and x64. The thing is most of the programs that need the missing file were written for 32-bit systems that was much more popular than the 64-bit system. .

The msvcp110.dll Missing Error Has Appeared After Updating to Windows 8.1, 10

If before the update the program or a game were launched normally, and right after the update has been performed and you see error messages upon program launch try the following:

Enter the Control Panel - Programs and Components. Remove the existing version of Visual C++ 2012 package. Then download and install the version of the software from the official Microsoft website just like it was described above.

What If The Problem Remains Unsolved?

Make sure that your drivers are updated to the last version. The thing is usually the problems with dlls are caused by the ignorance of updates for drivers and thus the software installed calls wrong libraries or remains incompatible with outdated driver coverage.

One more option to try is to make that the program's folder doesn't contain the library that is stated to be missing. Delete it from the folder (you also can drag it to another folder or just rename if you want to) so that the executing program would address to the library file that was just installed from official Microsoft website.


When It Is Better to Use Download the Installation File from Microsoft?

At the beginning - when the problem has just appeared you can download the missing file by following the link provided in the first part of the article. If that wasn't helpful it would be a good idea to follow the Microsoft site link and download the component to install it.
