How to fix msvcr71.dll is missing error on Windows 7

I am currently studying an IT Engineering at my local university and need to install some software for homework projects. In particular, for programming, I tried creating an executable (.exe) file with the help of Visual Studio 2013 some days ago, after which I attempted to execute it through my system which runs Windows 8.1. It worked well until I tried launching it with my Windows 7 64. Unfortunately, I received an error message stating that msvcr71.dll is missing and could not be found and that I should try reinstalling the application. Since I was only attempting to execute .exe file, I felt the system error didn’t make sense. However, upon further investigation, I discovered that msvcr71.dll is actually part of Visual Studio 2013’s redistributable, so by default it can’t be part of Windows 7.


I’ve spent lots of time searching for the solution on the Internet. However, most of the guides were misleading. There are many YouTube videos showing how to fix msvcr71.dll is missing error, but in the description you will find links to malicious websites, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend following those guides. Anyway, after a while I finally found what I was looking for, and managed to fix the msvcr71.dll is missing error.So, if you’re experiencing the msvcr71.dll is missing error on your Windows 7, all you have to do is install this particular library. Just visit, download and then install the msvcr71.dll file. You’ll find installation instructions on the download page; copy the file and paste it in the appropriate location. Once I installed the msvcr71.dll library, I was finally able to successfully execute the .exe file. I hope you find this as helpful as I did.
