When I try to start Origin, I see a message "The program can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." How do I solve this?

Origin 8.6 is built using Microsoft (MS) Visual C++ 2010, and thus it requires certain MS DLLs to run. These DLLs need to exist on the computer where Origin 8.6 runs. If you run Origin on a computer without these DLLs, you will see an MS DLL error at Origin startup.

Also, to install the MS DLLs, the computer must have Windows Installer installed. If the OS is old (such as XP Sp2 or earlier), then it may not have Windows Installer present. So in such case, you will need to install Windows Installer first, and then the MS DLLs.

Learn more and download the Windows Installer (if needed) and MS DLL installers.
