Found this but not sure if it will work or not.

Start > run > and type "regsrv32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcp71.dll" (without the quotes) click OK.

You will get a message window either telling you it has been registered successfully or an error notice.

Google

Having a good look through Google there were a few remedies for it but nothing that I have tried before.

So maybe best waiting for someone that knows to give you the proper advice.

If using W/7 you could go to Command prompt and type in sfc /scannow and see if that finds any problems.

You would probably need the Windows Cd if using XP.

Not sure if you need the CD with Vista but I am sure someone can tell us if you need it or don't. With vista you may have to right click command prompt and tick run as administrator.

Try it without the disc and if it ask's you to insert one just come out of it again.

There is a way of doing it without the Cd but will have to look and see if I can find it.

Had a look at this and it did not say anything about loading the CD so I would assume you can run it without it.
