    this application has failed to start because msvcr71.dll was not found




      I just downloaded the Flex 3.3 DK from here:



      Once unzipped I went to run this:

      C:\DATA\My Documents\_jim\flash\open-source\_Software\flex_sdk_3\bin\mxmlc.exe


      When I ran it, I got this error


      This application has failed to start because msvcr71.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem


      I searched on Google, and found this:



      So from there, downloaded "msvcr71.dll", placed here:



      And ran the following in the Command prompt: regsvr32 "msvcr71.dll".


      When I did that, I got this error message:

      msvcr71.dll was loaded but the DLLRegisterServer entry point was not found
      The file was not registered


      I saw that the DLL is related to Microsoft Visual Basic Runtime, so I deleted the dll I saved manually, and ran the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) from here:

      Once done, the dll was not placed in the System32 folder.


      I tried the manual install of the DLL again, but on trying to register it again, got the same error message.


      Has anyone else had this problem?


      Seems like I might have hit a brick wall.
