I started playing Counter Strike Global Offensive, also known as CS:GO a year ago and this game never gave me any problem. Today, out of nowhere, when I tried to launch the CS:GO on steam I received a system error saying that msvcr100.dll is missing from your computer, please try to reinstall the application. Well, I followed the instruction of the error message and reinstalled the game. Thankfully to steam the reinstallation process takes few minutes, but anyway, that didn’t fix the msvcr100.dll is missing error in CS:GO. First thing I thought is that I was hacked, but afterwards I looked on the Internet and discovered that msvcr100.dll is missing is quite common error and may happen in any game or application on Windows.
I have no idea how come, but suddenly my msvcr100.dll file has disappeared from the system library. Maybe my antivirus just removed it for some reason, I honestly don’t know. Anyway, I found that manual installation of the msvcr100.dll might fix the problem. So I went to the http://fix4dll.com/msvcr100_dll and downloaded the file. After that I simply followed the installation instructions provided on the website. In few words it’s just copy and paste the downloaded file into the right location depending on your operating system version. Nothing difficult. After rebooting my computer I was able to launch CS:GO without msvcr100.dll is missing error.
Msvcr100.dll is missing error may also happen in other applications, however it is not the problem anymore since you can manually download and install it. Hope this article was helpful for you.
