Help me blender startup problem

Hello, I use Windows 98SE and I downloaded blender along with the pack it said i have to download. However, whenever i try to start up blender, i get this message “A required .DLL file, MSVCR71.DLL, was not found.” I don’t know how to get that .DLL! Please help.:frowning:

man, just google “MSVCR71.dll”, I think you will find a site like “”, download this dll ( dynamic linked library ), put the file next to your blender.exe, and run…

Actually, that .dll is most likely on your PC already, only in a different directory. A quick search and a copy + paste (in the directory mentioned before, where blender.exe resides) will do the job, too, if you don’t trust the online resources.
