Devil May Cry 5 Msvcp100 Dll Missing Error

How to Fix Devil May Cry 5 Msvcp100.dll Missing Error

If you are trying to play Devil May Cry 5 on your Windows 10 PC, but you encounter a pop-up message saying "The program can't start because msvcp100.dll is missing from your computer", don't panic. This is a common error that can be fixed easily. In this article, we will explain what causes this error and how to solve it.


What is msvcp100.dll and why is it missing?

Msvcp100.dll is a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file that is part of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package. This package provides runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries that are required to run applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2010 installed. Devil May Cry 5 is one of the applications that depends on this package.

There are several reasons why msvcp100.dll might be missing from your computer, such as:

  • The file was accidentally deleted or corrupted by a virus or malware.

  • The file was overwritten by a newer or incompatible version.

  • The file was not properly installed or registered by the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package.

  • The Windows registry has invalid or damaged entries related to the file.

When msvcp100.dll is missing, Devil May Cry 5 cannot access the functions and resources that it needs from the file, and therefore fails to start or run properly.

How to fix msvcp100.dll missing error?

There are several methods that you can try to fix this error. You don't need to try them all, just work your way down until you find the one that works for you.

Method 1: Reinstall the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

The official way to install the msvcp100.dll file is to get the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update from Microsoft. This will replace or restore the msvcp100.dll file with the most recent and compatible copy provided by Microsoft. To do this:

  • On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run box.

  • Type appwiz.cpl and click OK to open the Programs and Features window.

  • Check to see what version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable program that you have installed. You may have more than one version, such as 2005, 2008, 2012, etc. Select one from the list and click Uninstall.

  • Repeat the uninstall process with the other Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable programs that you see here.

  • Go to the Microsoft download page and select your language. Then click Download.

  • You will be given more than one download option, based on the version of Windows you have installed - x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit). See How to Tell if You Have Windows 64-Bit or 32-Bit for help, if you're not sure what to choose. Check the box next to the appropriate file and click Next to download it.

  • When the download finishes, double-click the installation file to install it on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

  • When the installation finishes, reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

Now try launching Devil May Cry 5 again and see if the error is gone. If not, move on to the next method.

Method 2: Copy the file from another computer

You can also fix this error by copying the same file from another computer that runs the same operating system as yours. The versions (Windows 10/8/7) and architectures (32-bit/64-bit) of both operating systems must be the same. To do this:

  • Find another computer that has msvcp100.dll installed. You can check this by going to C:\Windows\System32 and looking for the file.

  • Copy the msvcp100.dll file from that computer to an external storage device, such as a USB flash drive.

  • Insert the USB flash drive into your own computer and open it in File Explorer (by pressing the Windows logo key and E on your keyboard).

  • Paste the copied file to the same location (C:\Windows\System32) on your own computer. If you are prompted to replace the existing file, click Yes.

  • Reboot your computer and try running Devil May Cry 5 again.

This should fix the error, but if not, there is one more method you can try.

Method 3: Run a virus scan

It is possible that a virus or malware infection has damaged or deleted the msvcp100.dll file from your computer. To rule out this possibility, you should run a full system scan with your antivirus program. You can use Windows Defender, which is built into Windows 10, or any other reputable third-party antivirus software. To run a virus scan with Windows Defender:

  • On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and I at the same time to open the Settings app.

  • Click Update & Security, then click Windows Security from the left pane.

  • Click Virus & threat protection, then click Scan options under the Current threats section.

  • Select Full scan and click Scan now. This will scan your entire system for any potential threats.

  • Wait for the scan to complete. If any viruses or malware are found, follow the instructions to remove them.

  • Restart your computer and check if the error is resolved.

We hope that one of these methods helped you fix the Devil May Cry 5 msvcp100.dll missing error. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below.
