Finally, on Steam Christmas sale of the year and I’ve purchased Hearts of Iron IV game. My happiness had no bounds, I got my favourite game for very cheap. Anyway I was unpleasantly surprised after installing the game. Once I tried to launch it I got msvcr120.dll is missing from your computer error. From the description of the system error I understood that I need to reinstall the game to fix the error. I thought that something gone wrong during the installation and therefore the error appears, but I was wrong. The reinstallation of HEARTS OF IRON IV didn’t solve the msvcr120.dll is missing error. Neither the reinstallation of graphic card drivers and redistributable software has helped. Many users have faced the same error, however it looks like it is not related with the game itself.
I started to search deeper on various Internet forums for the solution for msvcr120.dll is missing error in HEARTS OF IRON IV. A lot of users suggested to run some third party software to fix the problem, but most of those are malware and once I downloaded it, my antivirus immediately displayed a warning message and removed those files. Anyway, after a while I found one guide that was simply to execute and didn’t require any installation of additional software.
