Q: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error message This thread is locked from future replies

I'm setting up a new computer with Windows 7. At start up I receive this message: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information. I've gone on line for help and have tried several fixes with no success. I'm a novice at setting up a computer, though I've done it before. What do I need to do to fix this? Don't get too technical!

Answer

A:

Hi,

This error can be caused due to Runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries are missing or due to software problem.

 

Method: 1

I would suggest you to try performing a clean boot and check if you can install.

A clean boot helps to verify if any third party application services or startup item is causing this issue.

You may refer the following KB article to put the computer in clean boot:

If your issue is resolved after performing Clean Boot, then follow the steps mentioned in the above KB article to narrow down the exact source.

Also, after resolving the issue, see the section on the clean boot link to how to return your computer to a Normal startup mode by following the steps under “Reset the computer to start as usual.

Method 2:

You may also  reinstall the Runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries to resolve the problem.

You can uninstall any existing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package and install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package and check if it helps.

Step 1: To uninstall the package:

a. Open Programs and Features.

b. From the list, find Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package and click on it.

c. Right click on it and select Uninstall

d. Restart the computer.

Step 2: Download and install the latest package and see if it helps.

Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)
