Merry Christmas to all. Christmas is a great time to buy presents with discounts, and I am not exception, I bought Skyrim on steam as a Christmas present to myself. However after installing it I was unable to launch it. The first time I launched the game, my screen turned black and after like 3 seconds I got system error message saying that msvcp120.dll is missing from my computer and I need to reinstall the program. Well it’s easy to reinstall programs on steam, so I quickly reinstalled the game but still the same error appeared. I am running Windows 8.1 64 bit and I thought that the msvcp120.dll is missing problem is related with my operating system so I started to look for the solution on the Internet.
Few hours later, I found that msvcp120.dll is missing error is quite popular error on Windows 8 and 8.1 operating systems. It happens because Windows 8/8.1 doesn’t have preinstalled Microsoft Visual Studio, so you have to manually install it, but there is no guarantee that it will fix the problem. After that I found some simple fixing guide and tried it, and boom, it worked. So , as it is Christmas, my present for you will be the fixing solution for msvcp120.dll is missing error on Windows 8/8.1. All you have to do is to download and install msvcp120.dll library from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcp120_dll. Detailed installation instruction is well described on the downloading page. Hope it helped you to fix msvcp120.dll is missing error on Windows 8/8.1.
