NASCAR Heat Evolutions takes racing games into the next level. It is one of my favorite games of all the time. Recently I’ve decided to bring back good old memories and play it on my Windows 7 and was unpleasantly surprised – after the installation, once I tried to launch the game I got application error stating that msvcr71.dll is missing from my computer and to fix this issue I have to reinstall the application. The reinstallation didn’t help at all and I had to follow the guide that I found on the Internet. After simple manipulations with files I finally was able to run the game without dll error.
So, after wasting few hours and trying various solution guides I came to the conclusion that msvcr71.dll is missing error is not quite related with NASCAR Heat Evolutions game. It can happen upon launching any program that require msvcr71.dll library for proper operation. Msvcr71.dll is a system library that should be located in the system folder and sometimes in the folder of the application that requires it. In my case the game was not supplied with the file and for some reason it also disappeared from the system folder. So, instead of reinstalling windows, I just installed the msvcr71.dll file downloaded from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcr71_dll. The installation instruction is also available on the website. After rebooting my computer, I was able to successfully run NASCAR Heat Evolutions and enjoy the game.
I hope you will be able to fix your msvcr71.dll is missing error with the help of this guide. Feel free to share it among your friends.
