After undergoing virus attacks, I recently started experiencing different errors on my system. I got an error message stating that msvcr71.dll is missing and cannot be found on my system when I attempted to lunch certain games. I decided to reinstall the game, including redistributables such as Microsoft Visual Studio and DirectX, but nothing seemed to work. I decided to look for a solution online and I discovered a very easy guide. Because I’m not really a computer genius I only used it to play video games and watch movies, but this guide provided me with an easy way to fix the msvcr71.dll is missing error on my Windows 10.
The first thing I want to let you know is that you can’t fix the msvcr71.dll is missing error by having the game reinstalled. Another thing that happened to me was that the msvcr71.dll was replaced by malicious files and it was removed from the system folder by my antivirus. This explains why I kept on getting the msvcr71.dll is missing error every time I tried to run an application. Almost all the applications need msvcr71.dll to function properly.
All you need to fix the msvcr71.dll is missing error is to download and then install the msvcr71.dll file from https://fix4dll.com/msvcr71_dll. You then select either the 64 or the 32-bit version that is most appropriate for your operating system. You can find the installation instructions which are quite straightforward on the download page; all you have to do is copy the msvcr71.dll file to the system folder. This is how I fixed the msvcr71.dll cannot be found error on my Windows 10.
