Streets & Trips 2010 won’t load

Update October 18, 2013: I just updated to Windows 8.1, and Streets & Trips 2010 continues to load and function.

I’ve been using MS Streets & Trips forever. About a month ago, v2010 (I know, I’m cheap frugal. I can’t help it.) stopped working on my Windows 8.0 laptop installation. Something about registry errors kept popping up. This was after the September 2013 Patch Tuesday update. Go figure.

I did a search – well, duh – and discovered a bunch of solutions that don’t work. Imagine that.

Here’s my answer to the mfc100.dll file is missing error, and/or the registry error. I downloaded and reinstalled vcredist_x86.exe by selecting “Repair Microsoft Visual C++ x86 Redistributable to its original state”.

As it says on the page,

  1. Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package. You do not need to uninstall/reinstall S&T for this.
  2. After it is installed – try launching S&T again.
