Windows 10 upgrade breaks Adobe CC - MSVCR110.dll missing

After my upgrade, my Adobe CC apps no longer work - they error out with a missing MSVCR110.dll and MSVCP110.dll message.

Normally reinstalling the C++ redistributables would fix those messages, but alas, it did not work.  I tried that already.

The files DO exist, in c:\Windows\SysWOW64\

Thoughts or Ideas on how to fix this?

After I upgraded from windows 8.1 to windows 10 my computer which is only a few months old is extremely slow.

Before it started up in seconds now it takes 4-5 minutes.

After start up it is extremely slow and msvcr100.dll and msvcp110.dll erroes pops up on the screen all the time.

There does not seem to be any fix to this anywhere on the net I have already tried various programs which promis they can fix he problem but none of them have been abel to solve the problem.

And when i try to reinstall the C++ program from microsoft I'm denied because i'm told that the newest version of that programe is already installed on my machine.

So all in all this free windows 10 upgrade has ruined my new laptop.

had the same issue, this solve my probleme:

If you upgraded to Windows 10 .... You hopefully have a folder called: 

C:\Windows.old\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 

created by the upgrade. 

 just copy these 2 .dll files ... 

msvcp100.dll 
msvcr100.dll 

From: 

C:\Windows.old\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 

To: 

C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 

Now they should all run in Windows 10. 

p.s. 

Of course, this is for a 64 bit system. 

For a 32 bit system, you might have to copy them from 

C:\Windows.old\WINDOWS\System32 

To: 

C:\WINDOWS\System32

Actually copying those files from Wow64 leads to worse errors for many apps. They will mismatch Registry entries, I highly recommend you DONT do that.  It only really helps 'stand-alone' compiled apps, which are fairly uncommon, but yes, it does work for those apps.

I just wanted to share my solution from the Adobe site here.... This actually works....

Uninstall any C++ items you find in you control panel.  The big 'yuck' here is that C++ 2008 libraries simply don't run in Windows 10, nor should they have to.  This was a default for ALL Adobe apps, including Acrobat reader and Flash, and Creative Cloud - until last week, when they fixed it with an update that refuses to download.

Oh yeah.. REBOOT after you do this or you are spinning your wheels... Now....

Reinstall C++ redistributables, most key ones being 2012, and newer.

Things seem to work MUCH better now.  Including the pre-patch Adobe CC apps.

Hope this helps!!!!

Cheers

After 2 hours of frustration trying numerous sites I found this solution and used it for MSVCR110.dll. Took less than 2 minutes to implement and Windows Mail now works without having to reinstall or lose anything.

I guess it is what dependencies you have.  My system has run without issues since I followed the instructions.  My laboratory has avoided Adobe so we have no issues there.  So it may be that we have banned Adobe that allowed this simple fix to work...well wonderfully.  Microsoft and Adobe both should have had this under control since they have vested interests.

I blame Adobe poor programming and communications.
