If I remember right that particular dll should live in the System32 folder and your not the only person to come across this problem with Civ4.

I had to research this one a while back for a friend of mine and the solution I used was to download the file itself from:

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl....shtml?msvcp71

stick it in your System32 folder then go to your command prompt and type:

regsvr32 "c:\windows\System32\msvcp71.dll"

Have problems with civilization 4 game
I downloaded the msvcp71.dll and placed it into System32. After I went to the command prompt and typed what you told me. I got this message. C:\regsvr32' is not recognized as an interal or external command, operable program or bath file.
The message I'm getting is that MSVCR71.dll file is missing.

used the run box instead.

Start > Run> type
regsvr32 "c:\windows\System32\msvcp71.dll"


if it happens again, remove the quotation marks.

Instead of putting in the file msvcp71.dll it was missing the msvcr71.dll file and did the same thing regvsr c:\windows\system32\msvcr71.dll and worked ..Thanks guys..
