    When my computer starts up I get the message "The program can't start because MSVCR80.dll is mission from you computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

    Perhaps the program that doesn't start is "APSDaemon.exe - System Error"
    I do know that I can not load iTunes so my iPad is not talking nicely with my PC any more.:eek:

    Thanks for helping.

    GrasshopperSRB, I got the same type of error last night when I ran an iTunes software update....I kept getting an error when trying to update....now I get a bunch of pop ups when starting up my computer saying MSVCR80.dll is missing. Did you get this issue resolved yet? Please let me know. I can't get into iTunes at all....Thanks.....

    huggie54, I looked at your link. I am just too much of a technical computer novice to understand....let alone do this.....I am afraid that I will mess something up. I tried the number #2 solution....I think that I did it right....but still getting message when start up computer and when try to get into iTunes.....I am afraid to uninstall iTunes, etc. because I have copied a number of CDs to iTunes & I will probably have to copy them all over again if uninstall iTunes....but I will if that is the only solution. I am convinced this happened last night when I tried to install an update to the iTunes software.....I have did these updates so many times in the past and never had a problem....if you can help or have an idea of how to fix this issue, please let me know. Thanks......

    This is happening to a lot of people since iTunes last update. I fell victim to it last night and uninstalling/reinstalling was the only thing that worked. All my music stayed in tact.

    I received the following message in January 2014 after an itunes automatic update:

    APSDaemon.exe System Error

    MSVCR80.dll missing

    Coincidentally, Microsoft also had an automatic system update in January.

    Please help. I have now uninstalled and reinstalled itunes in google chrome and internet explorer several times to no avail.

    My system is Windows 7, not XP.

    Yes, thank you, I did.

    First I read the link in About.com and noticed that .dll files are sometimes accidentally deleted by the end user, so I opened my trash file and transferred everything back as active. Then, I restarted my computer and still received a number of automated pop-up warnings, so I proceeded to delete every single Apple program on my computer. Then I restarted my computer, logged onto itunes.com, installed the free download in both the x86 programs and programs folders on my C drive. I seem to have programs in both folders and since I have uninstalled and installed itunes 7 times in 24 hours, I was at my wit's end. Once itunes was installed, it worked fine.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! YOU ARE THE GREATEST HUMAN BEING ON THIS PLANET.
    Thanks for solving my problem and following up with me. It's nice to know that there are good people in this world who really care to help others in a crisis. This was my personal Tsunami.

    Happy 2014, the Chinese New Year of the Horse.
