I’m working with PHP from last 4+ years (scene 2012). I mostly use WAMP server while I’m using windows system. Many times on newly install operating system cause error you may get following error “MSVCR100.dll is missing” exactly between installing WAMP. Ever many of my friends too ask me help to solve this issue while they come across same. So today I decided to share my way to tackle this issue.
WAMP can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing on your computer.
DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library & these files are used by many programs on your computer including games.
MSVCR100.dll is missing while WAMP server install problem mostly occur when new operating system have install. That MSVCR100.dll file is one part of Microsoft Visual C++. Because of MSVCR100.dll file missing Apache Server won’t run.
To resolve this issue download following files and install that. This files installation resolves your MSVCR100.dll is missing issue.
Choose your files as per your Operating System Type (32 bit or 64 bit)
For Windows 32 bit OS (Operating System):
After download you will get vcredist_x86.exe file. Once you done install it.
For Windows 64 bit OS (Operating System):
After download you will get vcredist_x64.exe file. Once you done install it.
you may download MSVCR100.dll from here as well.
Note Related To New Updates:
If you are using WAMPServer version 2.5, that’s too need Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012.
If you’re getting error with WAMP 2.5,
Go to following link: Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4
Point to consider:
- Close all the programs running
- Uninstall the installed WAMP server
- Make sure Internet Explorer (IE) is set your default browser before the installation.
- Download the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package as per the system need and install
- Reboot the machine
- Run the WAMP SERVER as an administrator
- In between it might ask you to select Explorer.exe, all you just need to is click Open button as default it opens the location c:\windows
Once you done with all above guidelines I hope the issue will resolve.
