MSVCRT.DLL the Standard C Runtime Library Module
An essential component of the Microsoft C Runtime Library, the msvcrt.dll is a module containing standard C library functions, including printf, memcpy and cos. While its part of the Windows operating systems, it is not considered as a critical file for the system. The msvcrt.dll file is required to run programs written in Microsoft Visual Basic and other Microsoft programs such as Work Suite, Works Suite, Encarta Encyclopedia, Encarta Virtual Globe, Graphics Studio Greetings, as well as other third party programs including America Online (AOL) version 4.0, HyperTerminal and ColdFusion MX.
Windows XP and later versions are equipped with the latest dll files, including all C Runtime library files. Operating Systems such as Windows 98 Standard Edition, NT Server 4.0 and NT Workstation 4.0 have the older versions of msvcrt.dll and they should be updated.
Common errors with regard to msvcrt.dll are associated with multiple versions of the file been present in the computer, and missing file issues.
“Program caused an invalid page fault in module MSVCRT.DLL at xxxx: xxxxxxxx”
As mentioned earlier, this is a common error with computers having an older version of the msvcrt,dll file. To obtain the latest updates, go to http://support.microsoft.com/ph/1139 and download the relevant files. Further support is provided by Microsoft, if required.
“Procedure entry point __ lc_collate_cp could not be located in MSVCRT.dll”
An error occurring when trying to install a program such as ColdFusion MX, this error comes up because ColdFusion MX requires Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 Runtime or higher as a system requirement. The error notice appears because you have MFC/MSVC Components prior to version 6 installed in your system.
To solve this, install version 6 or higher of the Runtime Components for Visual C++ applications. It’s available in the ColdFusion MX CD-ROM (localdrive\ColdFusion Image\Redistrib\MSVCRT\setup.exe) and also via http://support.microsoft.com/ph/1139, where it can be downloaded.
