The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP120.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem


Release : 6.x and 7.x

Sub-Component: Manager for SAP Solutions

OS: Windows only


Missing information in the documentation about the prerequisites needed on Windows.


Before attempting to Install or Activating the Manager for SAP on Windows, it's necessary to install these libraries

Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013

Since version 6.10.21, as only the WINDOWS64 kit is available, the only version needed is the 64bit: vcredist_x64.exe

As soon as you install it, the Manager for SAP should be able to start without any error.
