I have purchased the Edge of Darkness pack for Escape from Tarkov game for 110 euros. Yeah, quite a lot of the game which is still under the development, however I decided to support the developers and also get an access to early alpha which is open now. So, I have installed the game and launched it, but it closed unexpectedly with an error “The program can’t start because msvcr120.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem”. I’ve wrote on the forum, however it looks like developers are busy with other stuff and I didn’t get any official reply regarding my issue. So, I started to look for the solution by myself.
Msvcr120.dll is missing error is a pretty common error that can happen in any game or program. It doesn’t matter what system you are running, it might appear out of nowhere and destroy your gaming mood like it did to me. Anyway, I didn’t give up and starter to apply my IT knowledge, which resulted in a quick fix after a few minutes of investigation. So, I found that somehow my msvcr120.dll library has disappeared from the system folder. I don’t know the reason for that, but I know for sure that this situation led to the error message and prevented me from playing alpha of Escape from Tarkov. I was able to fix msvcr120.dll is missing error by downloading msvcr120.dll file from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcr120_dll and installing it by following the instructions provided on the website. For the last, the game will be awesome. Because of NDA I cannot share with you much details, but early alpha is already great! Can’t wait to see the release!
