MSVCP120.dll

description

Trying to get the program up and running on my new W7 64 PC.
First thing that happened was I was told there is no MSVCP120.dll
The following website has a download (it's not on the Microsoft.com website so far as I could find!)
Note there are separate versions for 32-bit and 64-bit machines.

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcp120

I'll confirm if this has worked.

Don't try the dll from that site. Read the instructions on the home page here, I put the link to the download from Microsoft of the redistributable DLLs.

Thanks. I couldn't get it from the Microsoft site.
It wouldn't run. even though it was the correct file vcredist_x64.exe
The dll-files.com site seems to have a better selection of files, and a careful scan revealed no issue with the download.

Any comments gratefully received! I won't try your program until this evening.

No, the Microsoft site is the place to get the microsoft dlls from. I wouldn't trust dll-files.com at all!

The app is a 32-bit app, so you'll need the 32-bit redistributables. Running both sets on won't harm your computer.

OK, I'll download the 32-bit version. In my ignorance I had assumed my 64-bit PC needed the file with number 64 in it!
So instead I need to download and run vcredist_arm.exe
I hope my meanderings will help create useful items for the instruction manual!

When I run vcredist_arm.exe it says it is not a valid win32 application

are you running an ARM CPU? If not, then you don;t need the ARM version. Just the x86 and x86_64 ones.

Ah! So what I needed for my PC was vcredist_x86.exe.
Thanks!
When following you link it simply gives a choice of three files to download and run, without explanation.
(To check what CPU you are using use Control Panel - System and look under Processor)

Yeah, the details on the MS site tell you which to go for - but I assume everyone knows which one is which.

Feel free to write the user manual though.
