How to Resolve MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer

A runtime error thrown by Windows is as below when I was starting an application program:
The Program can’t start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
First of all, we have to know what MSVCR110.dll file is about. The MSVCR stands for MicroSoft Visual C++ Redistributable which is a free runtime environment for running C++ applications on Windows. I guess you are probably in any one of the following situations:
  • You have never installed any VC++ redistributable before running the program.
  • You had ever installed one VC++ redistributable but with an old version, for example, 2010.
Since MSVCR110.dll can be found in Visual C++ redistributable 2012 (Determining Which DLLs to Redistribute), we should download the software and install it to solve the problem. The download page is as below:
