  1. http://www.dll-files.com/

    Have a look on this site for the file MSVCR71.dll, download, unrar/zip to the windows - system directory.
  2. Yeah i tried it but still it doesnt work :(

    What about Visual Basic 6 SP6 runtime library, has this been updated?

    Quote:
    The Visual Basic 6 SP6 runtime library, also called vb6 runtime files or vbrun dll set, are required to run programs that were written in Visual Basic 6. It can be difficult to know whether a program needs these files because often an author fails to mention it in the help files or documentation. Typically the way you find out is that you run the program and an error message appears 'A required .DLL file was not found', 'Runtime error' (caution, this error has lots of different causes) or 'Error: the file msvbvm60.dll could not be found.'
  4. Did you put it in the right place? Needs to go in the c:WindowsSystem32 folder.

    The latest Hitman games uses Visual Basic?
  5. I just downloaded that thing just now. So how do i use it? Alright guys ot seems like were getting somewere here, really appreciate your help.
  6. Just open it up and let it extract to a folder of your choice (browse) then open the extracted file from the folder it's in.

    Hope this works for you.
  7. Didnt work :evil: This is so annoying! Any suggestions?
  8. Hey, sorry to sound like a noob but im gonna try extracting the dll file again and i want to be sure i send it to the right place so could you type out the the excact name of the file so i dont make a mistake? thanks

    You have to register it.. put it in C: Windows System32 then open up a command prompt and type regsvr32 dllname.dll.
  10. Sorry i really dont understand the excact way to type out windows system32 (i mean backslashes etc) and like i said i dont want to put it in wrong. Could explain exactly how its supposed to be typed? If i can get that done then it might work. thanks

    you dont have to type it.. damn board wont let me put that in. Is the DLL in the System32 directory already? If so.. just go to step 2..

    Start-->Run --> type regsvr32 dllname.dll.
  12. I've never had to do that 2nd command to get apps that use the MFC dlls to work. Just have to have it in the proper place. I deal with the files all the time at work since a lot of our software uses them and we work off clean installs that don't have them so we just copy them over every time.
  13. Damm ISP dropped out on me.

    I've just extracted it with winrar then cut and paste into the windows - system folder on my C drive (not system32), No regedit or anything else.
    That's where the read me file says to put them.


    Is this what you mean shadowduck

    Start-->Run --> type regsvr32 MSVCR71.dll
  14. Alright guys got it going!! :) I cant believe i did a clean windows installation when i just had to extract the dll file to a folder! Thanks guys, great advice!

    This works, for me!!
  19. I had a similar issue with something that was working and didnt' calling out the same error. I found that an update must have renamed or replaced some dll's with a xxxxxd.dll name. For instance, I had msvcr71d.dll. I simply made a copy of that file, and then renamed the copy to msvcr71.dll and rebooted. The problem was no longer. Good luck!
  20. if you have the hitman blood money game, go to the install directory and you will see msvcr71.dll then you copy and paste it in system32 folder

    Goodluck ;)
  21. i'm having the same problem but i dont know why i can't register the wsvcr71.dll file. I already downloaded the file but whenever i register the following error will be shown :

    "The module "msvcr71.dll" may not compatible with the version of windows that you're running. Check if the module is compatible with an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of regsvr32.exe"

    I appreciate alot if any suggestion.
    Thanks you guys !
  22. hi guys, i have just found 1 tip on youtube that for my system 64 i have to follow these steps on cmd :
    cd\
    cd windows
    cd sysWOW64
    regsvr32 msvcr71.dll

    but the other error also appeared that writen:

    "The module "msvcr71.dll" was located but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.
    Make sure that "msvcr71.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again".

    Lol. dont know what's wrong with my PC. PLZ help !
  23. Hi All, i had the same message after downloading Rumble Fighter. I recall a similar issue when trying to run another game a year or so ago.

    Just copy the msvcr71.dll from another game or Office folder into the root of the game directory. This seemed to work for me. :bounce:
  24. I put the dll into first the system32 folder, no help, so I put it into the system folder and its all good
  25. I'm also having the same trouble with a game of mine. Can someone please give me a simple step by step solution. I have read the previous post but have no idea what to do as im not the greatest when it comes to this technical stuff.

    Thanks!

  29. I have tried everything above and nothing works. I have tried putting the dll file in system, system 32 and sysWOW64. It does not register it. Does the dll file have to be in the game AND one of the files above?

    Have a look on this site for the file MSVCR71.dll, download, unrar/zip to the windows - system directory.

    I've been fighting the same thing for days now. The problem was that I was using "Real Player SP" for my default media player, and it seems to have been corrupted. I made "Windows Media Player 11" the default player, and it fixed the problem. When I tried to open "Real Player SP" I got the error message that the application couldn't open because it could find "MSVCR71.dll." I'm going to try and replace the "Real Player SP" because I use it to download videos from "You Tube," but I have no doult that the corrupt "Real Player SP" file was the cause of my misery. I was refered to this site by a person from "CNET Fourms." I hope this helps somebody.

  37. hi, for those who have windows 7 64
