Haven’t used my home desktop for a while and now when I finally came back from the business trip I started it. Computer booted normally as usual. Tried to launch Age of Empires 2 HD after not playing for a while but when I double click on the launcher it doesn’t do anything. The only thing it says is something like preparing to launch and after that window closes and nothing happens. When I tried to run the game directly from the .exe file in the game folder (steam/steamapps/common/AOE2HD/) it gave me mfc100.dll is missing error. The strange thing is that the game was working before, so I started to search for solution.
After spending few hours reading various forums I finally found the solution for mfc100.dll is missing error. The solution was described by some kind person on steam community forum. He said that to fix mfc100.dll is missing error I just need to download mfc100.dll library and place it to the windows/system32 folder. I downloaded mfc100.dll from here: http://fix4dll.com/mfc100_dll. And it actually worked. Now I am able to play my favorite game Age of Empires with HD textures.
Hope this helps you too to get rid of mfc100.dll is missing error on your computer. If it was helpful feel free to like and share to help more people.
