I'm running Windows Vista 64-bit on an AMD 64-bit duo processor system. I tried installing RealPlayer, the free version, onto my system, but that failed. Now I cannot run it, uninstall it, or attempt to install a new version. Whenever I try to call it I get the following error message:
This application has failed to start because MSVCP71.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
I've been looking around for help on this and it has been suggested that this DLL is a part of VS 2003. That may be the case, I did not install VS 2003 onto my system, as I just want to go with VS 2005 and VS 2008. Anyway, what is the cause of this error and what can I do to remedy it?
