    Hi Everyone

    I just bought a new computer yesterday that had the Windows 7 OS installed. On the first use I encountered a MSVC80.dll error when loading Adobe Photoshop on the computer which I've never encountered before when loading this program.

    I loaded the program on another computer (as I require it immediately for work) and I did not have any issues on the other comp which makes me think its Windows 7.

    Could someone help me?

    I have downloaded and bought RegistryEasy which I thought would help. Unfortunately this did not help and I still have the same issues.

    Being a new computer I'm feeling very frustrated that this has happened. Several internet websites have suggested so many different solutions. However I am only a beginner at comps and know only basics but am a quick learner and keen to try out any suggested solutions.

    Howdy,

    Are you trying to install Photo shop when you get the error or try to run it and which version is it?

    Have you downloaded you Windows 7 updates?

    Hi

    I have Adobe Photoshop CS4 which is the latest one out..

    I would like to stick with Windows 7 if possible.

    I was able to download the program, its when I click the icon this error message shows up requesting me to reinstall msvcp80.dll because 'its missing'.

    Hi megabite

    I got my friend to install it on my computer.

    I have basic knowledge on computers and installing programs etc.

    I can follow instruction well if you have the time to write down the steps so I can check.

    Ive moved the program into C drive and it is still saying the same thing?

    I am also downloading the updates just in case that is the problem.

    I don't believe it is though but will give it a try?

    Oh, I dunno. He just put it on. I suppose as long as its not W7 then I have nothign to worry about.

    If it is a legit copy then is this a major issue for me?

    Well I have seen that error before with CS4 but usually with pirate copy of it....not saying that this is one......and you cannot just move it to the C drive you would have to uninstall it restart the PC and re-install it on the C drive
