If you’re a Windows user and use Adobe software there’s a good chance you’ve run into this funky error message announcing something called the Visual Runtime Library is missing or corrupt.
The program can’t start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
The fun part is you probably have several versions of these libraries and guessing which one is causing the trouble requires time and expertise. Most support sites simply suggest uninstall/reinstall of one or all of the Visual Runtime Libraries. Not rocket science– but still time-consuming.
There must be a better way!
There is. I found a legitimate solution on the site Major Geeks. They have a handy Windows utility that will fix all versions from Vista to Windows 10. It removes all existing instances of the C++ runtimes and then reinstalls all the latest versions.
