Once you have Visual C ++ installed on your computer, it will install all the runtime components from the Visual C ++ libraries and also prevent the error named program cannot start because msvcp100 dll is missing from your computer.

Microsoft Visual C ++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable (x86) Microsoft Visual C ++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable (x64)
If Virtual C ++ 2010 doesn’t work, try downloading Microsoft Visual C ++ 2013 (x86 and x64) and you can also try Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (x86 and x64) .
