Call of Duty 2 vista msvcr80.dll
I am trying to play cod2 on my computer using vista and I keep getting an error message: "couldn't find library MSVCR80.dll please ensure it is installed." It wasn't there (in sys32) so I downloaded the .dll file (from DLL and first copied it into the cod2 program folder. That didn't work so I deleted it from cod2 program folder and copied it directly into system 32 folder. It still gives me the same error message every time. I found another post that relates to this, tried suggestions and nothing worked. I am using office 07 & I didn't try to edit the registry... Is the only way out to do regedit? Very frustrating, please's the link to the old post...

you don't need to edit the registry


Windows Defender and Microsoft Office 2007 have been known to cause errors with the installer. These include errors referencing "msvcr80.dll" and "mpShHook.dll." If you currently have either program installed, it is recommended that you uninstall the program, install the game and then you can re-install Windows Defender and/or Microsoft Office 2007 on your system. If you do not want to uninstall these programs you can try installing or re-installing Microsoft .Net 2.0. You can get it here. Installing .Net 2.0 has been known to fix this issue without having to uninstall Microsoft Office or Defender.
