Do you get Msvcp71.dll and Msvcr71.dll missing error when running a program in Windows 7? Both are Microsoft C Runtime Library files and it seems as if Microsoft forgot to add them to Windows 7. Some programs require you to have both files for it to work successfully.
We have uploaded both dll files for you(grab them from the bottom of this page), but the bigger question is how to install them? Before we begin, have a look at the errors in the screenshot below.
Installation In Windows 7 32-bit OS
If you are using Windows 7 32-bit then you need to put both dll files inside Windows/System32 folder as shown in the screenshot below.
