“The program can’t start because MSVCP100.DLL is missing from your computer”

The solution is to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package which come in 32 and 64 bit versions, the relevant files are vcredist_x86.exe and vcredist_x64.exe and they can be downloaded from the Microsoft site …

vcredist_x86.exe or
