Error: This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found

When opening QuickBooks Desktop, the following error displays:

This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Why this is happening

This error can occur if a component of the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime environment (msvcr80.dll) was deleted or if you have a different version installed than your QuickBooks Desktop requires. The file may have been altered by another program or by another version of QuickBooks.

How to fix it

Intuit recommends three solutions for this problem. The first solution may solve your problem, or you may need to try all three to resolve the issue. For best results, perform the solutions in the order shown.
