Just after when you upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, few users are reporting that they’re getting error that msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll files are missing. While it’s not a very big issue, yet it doesn’t allows the users to open any or many applications in daily usage.

Even this error is coming at startup for many users, as in their computer, some applications might be set to auto-start and then those applications trigger these errors.

Fix Missing Files msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll error in Windows 10

First of all, if those users, who’re getting issue while opening Adoble reader only in Windows 10, then uninstalling Adobe Acrobat Reader only and then installing the latest version by downloading directly from Adobe website should fix the issue.

Please be known, that sourcing the file from any source, even if it’s from Microsoft website and copy at system file path shall not fix the issue. These dll files needs to be registered to function properly and just copy paste won’t work. If you have already copy pasted both files from some source like from setup files of Visual C++ Redistributable of Visual studio, then chances are you’ll start getting error of 0xc000007b. So, just don’t copy paste these files from anywhere to avoid 0xc000007b error.

If that’s not your case, and your issue is Skype, then uninstall Skype from previous version windows. Then Open Start menu and there would be an icon of Get Skype. Install Skype from that option and you’ll be good to go.
