I just started to learn Android Studio; the download and installation was successful without any issues. When I about to start the application I was stuck up with an error message. I am not sure whether this is compatible with Windows operating system. I tried to reinstall it several time but nothing works. After a search, I installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package still I am getting the error. How do I fix this error? Help please.
studio.exe – Unable to Locate Component
This application has failed to start because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
Missing DLL Error-Unable to locate component
MSVCR means Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime. This MSVCR100.dll is a part of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010. Programs that are built using this C++ compiler requires a runtime that makes it run perfectly, making every hardware connection complete.
The Android Studio is also built using this Visual C++ compiler so it requires the runtime.
Download the runtime and install it. It will run smoothly without producing any more error.
Depending on your OS architecture, download the most suitable one. Note that if you have x64 OS, you have to install both x86 and x64.
Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package x86
Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package x64
