The Game Modding Community - Since 2001

I got an error when I launch my hl2 executabale.

A Forum Thread for Source Engine

When i run hl2.exe, then it shows an error "msvcr.dll not found. try to reinstall the game". 

Then i downloaded this dll from net and pasted it into system32 folder and then i run hl2.exe again but it shows different error "the msvcr.dll is not designed to run this program" and refused to run. Plz help me.
What can i do now?

    Where'd you get your .dll? I've been to at least 3 dll sites that take what you search, rename a blank .dll file with your search query, and then load your browser with all kinds of spyware cookies and stuff.

    Long story short, don't trust most .dll repositories, most are either out of date or fake. Also, when a game like HL2 needs a .dll, you usually have to put it relative to the actual game files, not system32. Such as bin or cfg
    What is the executable to? Are you developing a mod or downloaded one, or what?

    Need a little more info.

    I downloaded that dll from dll-files.com. which is trusted website. 

    I wish if you can provide me that dll please.

    Well executable is a extension used to run programs such as hl.exe. where .exe stands for executable. 

    I just downloaded counter strike source from se7enkills.net 
    It is v87 of css .

    Oh, well I don't know what to do for you there, I assumed you had the steam version.
    I don't know what to do about that, I don't even recognize the dll from my own source engine files.

    Yeah, my msvcr file says version 71, (msvcr71.dll)  and steam keeps games up to date. Don't know what you're running.

    I don't really have a way to send you mine, I think its like against the site rules to submit .dll files, though I'm not sure. I'll check soon.
