I am trying to install an old app on Windows 7 64-bit and I am encountering the following error:
The program can't start because MSVCP50.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
I tried downloading the DLL from various sites on the net, but it won't register (yes, i tried registering it on the Admin command window. The error was pretty curious itself (e.g. not the standard can't find entry point)
The module "c:\windows\system32\msvcp50.dll" failed to load.
Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
The specified module could not be found.
How do I resolve this issue?
