Do You Know What MSVCP.DLL is?
The msvcp71.dll file is found in the Microsoft C++ Runtime Library and it processes information for the runtime library.
Created by the Microsoft Development Studio, the msvcp71.dll is a system dynamic link library file, essential for Windows operating systems. The dll file is required to run most of the Microsoft and non-Microsoft programs and applications, including audio-video playback, imaging, instant messaging and graphics software. This is because of the Microsoft Shared Libraries concept, where most programs and applications can be developed to link to a dll file already available in the system – this concept allows for relatively concise patches and service packs in development.
The msvcp.dll file is used and released as several versions by other development companies, including Sony, Hewlett-Packard, Adobe, Nero, Symantec, AOL and Sun Microsystems, with their various software.
Some of the most commonly experienced errors linked to this important dll file are given below:
“This application has failed to start because Msvcp71.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”
“Msvcp71.dll is a bad windows image. Please check against your installation diskette.”
If you are running a program or application, it is likely that the error is in the program/application itself. Check the set-up files of the disk you are using and make sure it has not scratched or damaged and then run it again. Most programs and applications come with the msvcp71.dll bundled in the package, but if, while you are setting up the program or application, system asks for the specific dll, you can download it from www.dll-files.com
For further reassurance, you can use the SFC command in Windows XP and Vista operating systems. Run the command prompt, type sfc/scannow and press enter. DLL errors also take place because of outdated and invalid files on the system. This is why it is important to keep your computer updated with the latest Windows updates.
