Hi guys,

 

Well upon trying to download an application I the error message stating that MSVCR71.dll is missing from my computer. I am still not sure what's going on here. Upon doing lots of searching however I think this may indeed be driver related. Any help would be apreciated.

 

Thanks.

Thank you and also what third party driver software would you recommend for updating and installing any missing drivers. Basically what I want to do is install a bbcode editor to use for forum enviornments. I did download the bb editor here btw and so maybe that should be okay then.

I don't use "driver software" since none of it is necessary and, IMO, it is therefore of little benefit.

 

The drivers for motherboard functions of a system...should come from the system manufacturer (Dell, Lenovo, etc. for OEM systems)...or from the board manufacturer (for self-built systems).

 

Both a new system and a new motherboard...come with Drivers CDs, which can be used in lieu of possible updated drivers available at respective websites.
