The new iPhone 7 has been announced, so it means that soon Apple will release the final version of iOS 10 for Apple devices. That’s why I’ve decided to update the firmware of my iPad to the latest version. Anyway, since I haven’t updated it for a long time, I had to install the latest version of iTunes on my computer and at that moment I have faced a system error “This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem”. I’ve tried to download iTunes from the official site few times, but still, after the installation the msvcr80.dll is missing error appears.
While I was looking for the solution I’ve tested various methods and third party programs and nothing has helped me to fix msvcr80.dll is missing error. I almost lost hope to fix this error, when suddenly I found one, quite easy to perform, tutorial and it worked! So, instead of downloading some suspicious programs and messing with system registry I just downloaded the missing msvcr80.dll file from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcr80_dll and installed it into the proper location. The installation instruction is provided on the website. After rebooting my computer I’ve got rid of msvcr80.dll is missing error in iTunes and it never bothered me again. The installation process consists in copying the missing file into the proper location depending on what Operating System you using.
