Yesterday I bought the game called Hearts of Iron IV from Paradox – well known developers that know how to make strategy and RTS games. Anyway, this is not about them, but about the game error. When I pressed play button a pop-up window appeared with the text “Preparing to start Heart of Iron 4” which disappeared in a second and I got “msvcr100.dll is missing from your computer. Please reinstall the application to fix the problem”. I’ve tried reinstalling and verifying game cache, nothing worked for me. I was thinking about refund, but then I tried to run other games installed on my computer and got the same error – msvcr100.dll is missing from your computer. So, I at least I was sure that it’s not related with the game but with my operating system. Further investigation of the problem helped me to fix it.
I found that many users facing msvcr100.dll is missing problem in Hearts of Iron IV and in other games and applications. This may happen due to various reasons, virus attacks, system damaged and corrupted files, etc. Anyway, there is no time to describe the possible causes of msvcr100.dll is missing error. What is the most important is how to fix it without reinstalling Windows. And yes, it is possible and quite simple to perform. All you need to do is to download the missing library msvcr100.dll from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcr100_dll and follow the installation instructions provided here.
After that you might need to reboot your computer and the msvcr100.dll is missing from your computer error will not bother you anymore.
