Thinking about the "missing msvcr71.dll" message

    Frage

  • Brian and others,

      I followed the README.TXT in %wrk% to build the kernel. When making, I got the "missing msvcr71.dll" message launched by cl. Is copying the missing files to %wrk%\tools\x86\ the proper solution? Or doing some modification in makefile a proper one?

      Is this a little mistake in WRK? Or I am not having the correct WRK package (WRK v1.2)?

      Seems quite a few questions :-P. Any discussion appreciated~

    Yes, there is a problem with the WRK x86 compilation environment that we recently discovered. Certain machine configurations will give you "missing msvcr71.dll" and "missing msvcp71.dll" errors when you attempt to compile. Most of our testing was done on machines that had MS Visual Studio 2005 installed and we didn't run into this problem since all of the most recent DLLs are loaded onto the system. It wasn't until I tried to compile in a fresh Virtual PC image without MSVS that I noticed this problem. We plan to fix this in the downloadable version of the WRK this week and on the CD version during the next revision cycle.

    Until then, you can download the files online from sites such as www.dll-files.com. Just place the missing DLLs into the wrk-v1.2\base\x86 directory and everything should work fine.

    Sorry about the problem.

  • hi guys, having the same problem. have downloaded the 'MSVCR71.dll' file but don't know where to put it. Where is the tools/x86 directory?

  • When you install WRK to a directory X, you get subdirectories X\base, X\public, X\tools and X\WS03SP1HALS. Subdirectory X\tools contains subdirectories X\tools\amd64 and X\tools\x86.

  • me too.  i've been trying to figure out the msvcr71.dll for days.  went to the site.  (my problem is that realplayer won't install..that's when i get the error).  downloaded and extracted it and stuck into some wow file, which is what the people having the same problem on the forum suggested, and what had worked for them.  didn't for me

    i'm running windows 2000 xp sp2.  and am unfortunately only good at the retard directions.  so if somebody could humble themselves to talk down to me, i'd be appreciative (or provide another option, like downloading some windows runtime thing, which is where i've just come from, but didn't understand if it would help with the problem.

    thanks,

  • As was said in previous posts,
    1) go to http://www.dll-files.com
    2) download msvcr71.dll
    3) save this file to X\tools\x86 directory, where X is the directory you installed WRK to.

    I didn't quite get your reference to realplayer - what does it have to do with WRK compilation. You are trying to compile the Windows Research Kernel, right?

  • Hi,

    it seems there are actually two threads going on in this one thread: the first one deals with the problem that the WRK v1.2 is missing msvcr71.dll, which is a bug and will be fixed in a later revision. 

    The second thread is a more general one: Some applications, _not_ the WRK, are also missing the C runtime library msvcr71.dll. The solution proposed in this thread only deals with the first issue, which is why Serge and Brian do reference the tools\x86 directory. If you are using the WRK, you know what they are talking about. 

    If you are dealing with the second issue, download msvcr71.dll might indeed help, but apparently you won't find the tools\x86 directory. What might help in that case is either copy the dll into the same directory where the application is located that complains about the missing library. Otherwise, you may also try copying the library to %SYSTEMROOT%\system32, which, by default, is in the library search path. 

    However, if your application is not running because of the missing library, please contact the respective vendor or maintainer of your application. In this forum, help can only be provided for problems related to the Windows Research Kernel.

    Best regards,

  • I encountered the problem on yet a 3rd instance when running XNView running a 32 bit version of Windows.

    I kept getting the same message about missing the msvcr71.dll and found there are actually 2 in my system but of different sizes in different programs after a search.

    Installing Microsoft Visual Studio (any version that would work) would not solve the problem so on a long shot I copied the larger over to the System 32 folder, and just for added support in case needed, on to XNView's AddOn folder.

    Problem solved.
