I just updated my Notepad++ to the latest version (5.1.1) because I kept getting this dialog box before the application starts.
"Notepad++.exe - Unable to Locate Component"
"This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
The message seems to be just an annoyance, because the application works as expected after I click the OK button.
How can I get rid of the message?
One of the plugins is triggering that message, could you try removing one by one and see which one it is? Its usually an incorrect build setting
Me too. This is so annoying that I think I will change from notepad++ to metapad … I should never have updated. It was just fine before that…
I have no plugins..
Really? To be sure, simply rename your plugins folder, and restart Notepad++. Then you won't have any plugin, and please tell us whether ou are still missing Msvcrt80.dll
After an hour I said screw it and uninstalled it. Found the dll online and put it in the Windows folder. Then reinstalled the program and now it works.
I renamed the plugins folder as suggested in 5. and the problem went away. I haven't installed any plugins personally so it must be something bundled with Notepad++ causing this.
Just as a shot in the dark, can you try with the plugins back, and only remove TextFx (NppTextFX.dll). I have a hunch that's the offender.
A rebuild of TextFX with some bugs fixed is on my list, but it's a way down at the moment - I suspect it's on other peoples lists too.
Yep, that's it, renamed plugins back confirmed error, renamed NppTextFX.dll and error goes away.
I had the same problem. Will it be fixed in a future release?
I think recompiling the "NppTextFX.dll" should fix this problem.

What is your Notepad++ version? and TextFX version?
Does your TextFX come with Notepad++ release or you update it yourself?
yeah, i did it and no errormsg occurred anymore. but: i don't have any plugins now :-)
after some times of using, notepad++ suddenly starts to inform me about the missing msvcr80.dll. i think that was directly after i was associating this editor with a new filetypes (*.log). after that, this error msg is threating me :-)
and now? somebody any idea?
can't edit my last post, and i was'nt able to see all the other posts before i wrote that so:
windows 7, notepad++ v5.7 with all standard plugins. as i mentioned: after i was associating this editor with a new filetypes (*.log), this error occurred but after clicking "ok", everything works fine.
renaming alle the DLLs does not work, i have to rename the plugin folder oder delete all dlls to get out of the msvcr80 terror :-)

From your account, the problem relates to TextFX. Can you download http://oedoc.free.fr/NppTextFXforv57.dll , and see if it make any difference?
no, sorry. once there is any (also the downloaeded) dll file in the plugins folder i will get the message!
I downloaded the new NppTextFXforv57.dll, but I am still getting the same MSVCR80.dll error. Any other suggestions?
Clarification: I downloaded the new NppTextFXforv57.dll, but I am still getting the same MSVCR80.dll error. More verbose: I put the dll in the plugins folder and renamed the original file from the install. Same error. Renamed NppTextFXforv57.dll to NppTextFX.dll. Same error. Put a copy of MSVCR80.dll in the C:\windows\ folder. Different error. Removed the file altogether and the error goes away.
I'm using NPP v.5.8.6 and the problem is still present.
The TextFX Characters plugin seems to be the one buggy (removed it, all was fine, reinstalled it and the error was there) but apparently its functions are working when recalled… o.O
Any news on bugfix?

I was still having the same problem with the latest version on NPP (5.9.5)… I've analysed the plugins and some of them are indeed causing troubles… I've tested my installed plugins and here are the ones you could remove to avoid getting this annoying dll error message:
- ComparePlugin.dll (version 18.104.22.168)
- mimeTools.dll (version 22.214.171.124)
- NppConverter.dll (version 126.96.36.199)
- NppExport.dll (version 0.2.8.0)
- NppFTP.dll (version 0.2.4.0)
- NppTextFX.dll (0.2.6.0)
- SpellChecker.dll (version 188.8.131.52)
- XMLTools.dll (184.108.40.206)
There are maybe other ones but I've not installed all existing plugins.
Concerning the trick of copying the MSVCR80.dll to the running directory or the SYSTEM32 folder is solving the issue… But brings other runtimes issues.
I hope this helps :-)
I just copied the file MSVCR80.dll to the plugins directory, plugin finds it & everything is smooth.
The file comes with nearly every software distribution that requires it, except this plugin. I just let windows 7 indexer (click windows orb and start typing) search for the file and found about 10 copies. Copied over the one from OpenOffice.
great tip ~ thanks :-)
Can someone please upload this specific file either to this thread or to some file sharing site ?
just search your C:\Program Files\ directory and you will find it.
For example, I found one in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory.
Or search with Google, this was the first result I got:
(click "Download zip-file" and you will get it.)
Sorry, I should have specified that I had already tried all the msvcr80.dll on my computer (about 20) and this one as well.
I still get an "R6034 An application has made an attempt to load the C run time library incorrectly."
Probably it's the wrong version.
Can someone still send the dll that worked from openOffice ?
