MSVCR70.dll file is missing error pops up when launching hagui on Windows desktop.

Error Message

ClusterManager.exe - Unable To Locate Component.
This application has failed to start because MSVCR70.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


Every time customer tries to launch hagui from his Windows desktop the above error message pops up.

Typically, this issue occurs when the MSVCR70.dll Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2002 with the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 file is missing or not registered.

Many Microsoft and third-party programs use Microsoft C Runtime Library files and Microsoft Foundation Class Library files. If you remove a program that uses one of these files, the uninstall program may prompt you to remove the file. This issue may occur if the uninstall program does not detect that other programs use the file.

To resolve this issue, please use the following 3 steps.


Make sure that the MSVCR70.dll file exists in the %Windir%\System32 folder. If the MSVCR70.dll file does not exist in this folder, run search on the entire file system and if found copy a version of the file to the %Windir%\System32 folder. Then, register the file by typing the following command at a command prompt:

regsvr32 msvcr70.dll


If the file exists in the %Windir%\System32 directory and you receive the error message even after re-registering it, you may need to update the %PATH% environment variable at Start > Setting > Control Panel > System > Environment Variables > Path (under System Variables) then add/modify the path to include the path to MSVCR70.dll.


If MSVCR70.dll is not found anywhere on your desktop than you need to download and install it, probably from Microsoft.
Alternatively you can extract the file from the product installation binary file in the dvd1-sol_sparc/windows/VCSWindowsInstallers folder by using a compression utility that can read the content of cab files.

If you're using Windows XP or Windows Vista, then your operating system has built-in support for opening Cab files. They are described as "Cabinet files." Just double-click on a Cab file and it will open in Explorer, just like a folder. However, if you right-click on items in a cabinet file, you won't see all the same options you'd see for a file in a normal folder.
