MSVCR120.dll is missing from your computer

Post by nuthingfitz »

Hello - I went to rescan my channels when HD HomeRun, asked me to update and I did. After the update, I tried to launch the program to watch TV, now, I have the following error message and the program does not run:
"The program can't start because MSVCR120.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

So, I ran this install on this thread (viewtopic.php?f=119&t=73774). I am running Windows 7. I am still getting the same error message. Can someone please help?

Thanks for your reply. I just installed the files as suggested, but it did not fix my issue.

HD HomeRun was running fine before I installed the update. Is there a way to go back to a previous version of HD HomeRun?

Did you reboot after installing them? Sometimes it works without a reboot and sometimes it doesn't.

Oh no! I just rebooted, and now my Windows Media Center does not see my HD HomeRun tuner! So, no live TV at all.

I had no idea this update would mess everything up so bad. I am a novice at all of this. Been using WMC and HD HomeRun for years without knowing much about it.

Ok, i downloaded the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 files and I can see live TV again on WMC, but HD HomeRun is still giving me the same error message in my opening post.

Of course, HomeRun is better, because it has a guide, so I really would like to get this going again.

I would like to get back to the HD HomeRun version 1.0.34850.0 from 3/28/20, my last update. it was working perfectly fine for me.

Solution (thanks to one of my co-workers)

A co-worker decoded the error message. Yes, it was a Microsoft Visual C++ file, but the 120 = 12.0 when is 2013, so I downloaded this:

Everything works great now, and I have HomeRun (with the guide) and WMC still works too!
