Q: Missing msvcr120d.dll This thread is locked from future replies

HI all

I built an application using Visual Studio 2013 in Windows 7 64bit.  I built the application as a 32bit application.  I then copied the application over to my other computer, running Windows 8 64bit.

I downloaded the 64 and 32 bit Visual C++ 2013 Redistrib packages, and installed both.  I got these packages here:

However, whenever I try to run the application, I get an error saying that msvcr120d.dll is missing.

What do I need to do to be able to run my application?





Hi Jarrett,



The msvcrt.dll is now a system component owned and built by Windows. It is intended for use only by system-level components. The files msvcr110.dll (Visual Studio 2012) or msvcr120.dll (Microsoft Visual Studio 2013) are the new public versions of the CRT and are for use by Desktop application and user-mode driver developers.


To know more information:



Perform an SFC scan on your computer. Refer to the following link:


Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files
