    Hello, Ive been having problems with a couple of games on Steam saying they need the file msvcr120.dll, I searched the web and found i need to install Visual C++ and found several links with the install files. at official Microsoft sites.
    However running them does nothing. I have tried the uninstall / repair on both the 64 bit and 32 bit installers but the file does not appear. So i tried downloading just the file itself and trying to use "regsvr32 MSVCR120.DLL" in both the system32 and syswow64 directory but a mesage pops up saying "the module "msvcr120.dll" was loaded but entry-point dllregisterserver was not found. make sure that the file is a valid dll or ocx file and try again" im not sure why the installers from microsoft would not register the correct dll? i tried using system restore to a previous date and nothing. I also tried SFC/scannow without results. has anyone heard of a fix for this besides format and reinstall windows? Thank you.

    I don't know much about games but what I know about registry restore is that you have to make sure the registry type for your system is exactly the same as the one to be installed i.e. the service pack type,windows version,64 or 32 bit processor and the type of windows family(home pre. ultimate etc.) well that what I know!!!
