    this error just started ~2 weeks ago.
    i've seen it running ms outlook and my backup program, image for windows. the programs seem to run ok but the error msg keeps popping up.
    checked the properties of msvcrt.dll file in system32 & they appear correct.
    a search finds 1/2 dozen other versions of this file in other program subdirs.
    i've not done any major changes/installs to the system i can think of.
    anyone seen this or know what its talking about?

    is there a copy of the msvcrt.dll in the program folders for outlook and your backup program? if not then place it there.

    what error (source and event id) are located in event viewer?

    I can't find it in event viewer. I'll have to check it immediately after next error msg.
    didn't see dll file in program subdirs but why would it suddenly need it after after working ok without error msg for ~5 years?

    do not know, the last time I received this error it quit once I place the .dll in the particular program folder. It was worth a shot, :)

    did a virus scan (avg) yesterday which was ok.
    d/l new dll file from one drive & tried replacing it in system32,outlook,ifw subdirs but still get error msg when running ifw.
    could the system 32 file be corrupted when its' properties,file size,etc are correct?
    below is an image of all the locations my filefinder found for msvcrt.dll. Note the varying sizes in some of them.

    I followed most of the steps but no luck.
    I managed to "solve" the problem by restoring a backup from March 30th.
    Of course the catch is I have no idea what caused the problem in the 1st place. It hasn't re-occurred yet.
    anyway thanks for the help.

    The msvcrt.dll file is a part of the "Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0" and is crucial for most applications to work properly. It also contains program code that enables applications written in "Microsoft Visual C++" to run properly. The program code is basically string comparison tools and mathematic operations such as trigonometric operations.
