I receive a System Error that says:

The code execution cannot proceed becuase MSVCP110.dLL was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

 

I reinstalled and it did not fix the problem.

MSVCP110.dll is part of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages. You can download the latest package from the web site below:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433...

 

If you own a 64-bit OS, make sure to download and install both vc_redist.x86.exe and vc_redist.x64.exe files.

Yes, I check my system settings and I have x64 for Windows. I downloaded the Visual Studio package for x64, restarted and uninstalled After Effects and then reinstalled After Effects 2021. It did not launch. I am still getting the same error message.

Hi, Yes, this error also happens when attempting to launch Premier. Do you think it has something to do with my graphics card? I am running a GeForce GTX 970. Please see screen grabs. There is an update that was just pushed but it looks like the update is for gaming so I didn't install it.

 

Any help is appreciated. I have a video due for class next week and need to use Premier and After Effects!Capture.JPGCapture2.JPG

Odd that it didn't worked for both of you 😞

Please try downloading and installing Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4:

 

Also, take a look into C:\Windows\System32 and see if MSVCP110.dll is even there.

Hopefully, this helps! If not, I'll consider uploading the dll and give you a download link later on, so you can manually put it there. Why I usually don't do this and would not recommend it, this would be far safer than downloading it from a third-party DLL site.

That worked @thatsmauri !

 

I noticed that I had a file named "msvcp110_win.dll" previously.

Now I have "msvcp110.dll" and "msvcp110_win.dll".
