Licensing - xlicsrvrmgr.exe-System Error: The Program can't start because MSVCR110.dll is missing...


When running the Xilinx License server management utility (xlicsrvmgr.exe) on a Windows platform, I receive the following error:

xlicsrvrmgr.exe - System Error
The Program can't start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

How can I resolve this error?


This error will occur if the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable libraries are not installed on the Windows machine.
This error is typically seen on Windows license servers where the license utilities were downloaded separately and Vivado is not installed. 

A Vivado install will check for the existence of the MSVC redistributable libraries and install them if not found.

MSVCR110.dll is a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable dll that is required for projects built with Visual Studio 2011 (MS = Microsoft, V = Visual, C = C++, R = Redistributable)

xlicsrvrmgr.exe requires this file to run.

The redistributable install can be downloaded from the Microsoft website (x86 or x64 edition):

After downloading and installing the appropriate redistributable, the issue should be resolved.
