Issue: How to Fix “MSVCP110.dll is missing” Error on Windows 10?
Hello. After upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, I started getting an error message about missing MSVCP110.dll file. Usually, the error shows up when I try to start AVG, but sometimes I get it during Windows boot. Is it possible to install this file?
The MSVCP110.dll file is a part of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio. It ensures the performance of run-time components that exploit are crucial for the running C++ applications. If one of the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ library components, in this case MSVCP110.dll, is damaged, removed or corrupted, Windows OS can fail to run certain apps.
Few people have reported an error “MSVCP110.dll is missing” after upgrading to Windows 10 from earlier versions. While for some people the error shows up during boot or right after booting Windows 10, the others cannot run AVG, Windows Movie Maker, Windows Live Mail, Adobe Reader, TuneUp, Skype, and other useful apps.
