Try re-installing the .NET Framework:



Let us know how it goes.

I've upload msvcr120_clr0400.dll here:  <snipped>


The location is on: C:\Windows\System32


Make sure to back up your old file of msvcr120_clr0400.dll, before replace it with the new one.


Hope this can solve another user that have the same problem.

I can guarantee you that MSVCR120_CLR0400.dll is part of the .NET Framework. "CLR" is Common Language Runtime, which is a foundational part of the .NET Framework.


Repair your .NET Framework and you should be good. No need to download and swap around the DLL yourself -- that's actually very dangerous.
