WampServer is the most using software to make your computer a localhost for developing server script languages like PHP. PHP codes should load from a server and buying a PHP scripting server is costly but WampServer makes our computer as a virtual server for leaning PHP programming. But many are facing many problem while installing, starting, running WampServer, like the wamp icon does not turn into green, WampServer is always offline mode, port 80 cannot be loaded, Port 80 is used by other program, Forbidden You don’t have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ etc. Among them, file MSVCR100.dll missing from your computer is one of the popular errors with WampServer starting trouble.

Let us see, how to solve this problem:

Method 1:

Install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package

Installing Microsoft visual c++ redistributable package is the official and genuine solution for this problem. So just install the distributor package using below links from Microsoft’s website and that will install those such missing dll files on your computer.

Install second one if first link is not working.

Method 2:

Download and Place Missing valid MSVCR100.dl

As we mentioned earlier, we are going to add missed file to our computer. So you need to download this file from internet directly.
You can download a valid MSVCR100.dll from anywhere on internet, be careful while downloading dll files because they may contain some spy codes.
