 First of all, DONOT copy/install a dll if you do not know the source (There are a lot of trojans/viruses around which get installed this way).
 The right way to get the MS Visual C dlls are to install the MS Visual studio re-distributable runtime package (The 32-bit version is available at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=200B2FD9-AE1A-4A14-984D-389C36F85647&displaylang=en OR browse for "visual studio 2005 SP1 redistributable package" at www.microsoft.com).
 Also install the latest stable version (1.2) of MPICH2 (available at http://www.mcs.anl.gov/research/projects/mpich2/downloads/index.php?s=downloads).
 Before installing a new version of MPICH2 make sure that you uninstall the previous versions installed, if any.
 Let us know if it works for you.

Subject: [mpich-discuss] msvcr80.dll

Dear Sir, 

I download and install your excellent program; but when I run "mpiexec" on cmd, I have a message :"... MSVCR80.dll was not found ..." and when I copy this dll to system folder I have this message:" ... run-time error ....R6034 ...." 

I use: Windows XP SP3 and I installed the last version of dot net frame work and c++ run time library. I installed "mpich2-1.0.7rc1-win32-ia32.msi". Can you please help me about this problem? 

Thank you so much,
