Sometimes you can be surprised to get the error messages like that:
“The program can’t start because MSVCP71.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”
“This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”
There are many Dll files and so there can be different error messages. The loss or the corruption of the Dll files can be the consequence of the fact that a program was removed and the Dll file that was necessary for another program was removed together with it. Sometimes it can happen that some Dll files can be reinstalled and if the version of it is not compatible with other programs that are installed on your computer; we can see this error message. Sometimes the incorrect installation of the program can corrupt one or more Dll files or the user himself can mistakenly delete some Dll files. The reason can be also the problem of your hardware, for example bad hard disk drive, where the data can be corrupted.
In order to fix the missing Dll Files error you can try to download the copy of the missed file from any other computer. But usually the errors that are bound with the loss of Dll files are more serious problems and the substitution of the missed files can cause much more problems and additional error messages that will report you about other missed files. So, you should try to use some other methods before the replacement. If the error messages prevent your windows system from normal boot, then try to boot it into Safe Mode and perform the instructions, described below.

If the error message appears when you try to run any particular program, then the problem is inside the program. To eliminate the problem of the program is easier than to study the problems of some system files. If the program worked very well in the past, but the error message began to appear the just recently, then the re-installation of the program probably can solve the problem. But sometimes it can happen that, on the contrary, you have just uninstalled a new program, and it possibly can cause the problem. You can try to reinstall this program, in order to return Dll file back. And if this action helps, but you want to get rid of this program, then be sure that you click “No” or “No to all” when the computer will ask you should it delete system file or any other necessary for different programs file during the process of uninstallation.
