    The MSVCR100.dll Error message can be resolved by installing the following software

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26999

    At the link above the only option that you need to choose between would be:

    vcredist_x64.exe - For 64bit systems
    vcredist_x86.exe - For 32bit systems

      This IS the solution. If you install one component and still get the same error message then please install the other component as well!

      Thanks!
