    Hi there,
    I have just installed a program and everytime I try to run it, I get an
    error saying that MSVBVM50.dll is required. I do not know what that is. Is
    there anyway I can get the program to run? I have already tried compatibility
    mode but that does not seem to help.

    If you have access to a computer running Windows XP, you can Copy the file
    msvbvm50.dll from C:\WINDOWS\system32\, and Paste it into the same folder as
    the program's .exe file that requires it, for example, put it in C:\Program
    Files\ MyProgram, if the MyProgram folder contains MyProgram.exe. It
    shouldn't have to be put in Vista's C:\WINDOWS\system32\...

    If you don't have access to an XP computer, go to , and download . You can then
    extract the file from, and place in the folder as noted above.

    I am having the same problem. I downloaded the MSVBVM50.dll file but can't
    seem to extract it. I don't have a C:\Program
    Files\ MyProgram, so tried to extract it into Vista's C:\WINDOWS\system32\,
    but a window showed saying "access denied". Any help will be apreciated!

    Try downloading MSVBVM50.CAB to your desktop, double-click on MSVBVM50.CAB,
    then drag msvbvm50.dll out of the MSVBVM50.CAB "folder" to your desktop.
    Right-click on msvbvm50.dll, choose Cut, and Paste it into the same folder
    as the .exe file (program) that needs it.

    Even better, copy Both files contained within
    to the desktop.
    Right click on the MSVBVM50,inf Setup File, and click on Install.
    (The Setup File has a picture with one gear, the other file has 2 gears.)
    Now any program that needs it should run fine.

    It is Jan 2010 (2+ years after this post) and I used your link to resolve an
    issue I had with a program I was unable to get rid of. I just followed your
    instructions, placed it in the file and I was finally able to unistall it.

    in command mode
    run cmd
    goto c:\windows\systen32
    regsvr32 [location of the msvbvm50.dll]

    I've been trying to get the DLL to copy to or open in the app file that needs
    it but I get "access denied" (I'm the administrator and only user of this
    laptop) or when downloaded it to the file it simply wasn't there when I open
    the file. I'm running Win7, this dll worked when I ran Vista. Any
    suggestions on how I can get the DLL into the file?
