Error MSVCR120.dll is missing on starting XnView

Postby jgh » Wed Jul 19, 2017 4:46 pm

Having just installed XnView (2.40, new download of full version), when I start it I get an XnView.exe System error message box come up ''The program can't start because MSVCR120.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling...". But when I click ok, it (XnView) does seem to start up. Neither re-installation of XnView (as suggested in the message), nor a system reboot, have cured the problem.

My system: Windows 7 Professional, 32 bit.

(Edited to correst missing file name in title)

How might I do that?

Looking under Info > Plug-Ins Information it does not appear in the list of either plugins or Addons; nor can I see it in C:\Program Files\XnView , or any of its subfolders; nor is it mentioned in Plugins.txt.

(But one thing I did notice was in \XnView\Addon\Microsoft.VC90.CRT\msvcr90.dll ,dated 2008)

At installation I left the list of plugins and addons as it came.

Renamed webp.dll to ~.dl$, problem has gone away XnView now starts without error.
Just wondering what it was for - it didn't show up in plugins information, so I hope I don't need it.

Anyway, thanks - merci.

This I/O plug-in adds read and write support for the WebP file format to XnView.

Downloaded and unzipped that webp.dll, and copied it to plugins folder, problem has not recurred.

But I notice that that version of webp.dll is not the same size (and date) as the version which came with the XnView 2.40 (Extended) that I downloaded and installed, and that the version in the 'all plugins' zip file is different from both! - I would have expected them to be all the same.
