[GRASS-dev] repeated problem for installing GRASS for windows

Here is a problem one of my students encountered installing GRASS for Windows.

It is a problem that happens very often. It is not a GRASS problem per se, but it would be nice if we could solve it. Failing that, could we post on the WIKI or somewhere the solution to fixing the insidious missing DLL problem. Maybe even post a link to the fix on the GRASS for Windows download page. Then I could just send people there instead of having to ask on the list (or try to find if I kept the last email of someone who answered before).

Hi Michael,
I tried to update my version of Grass and keep getting the message below.  I've re-installed the program several times and keep getting this message.  I have no idea what MSVCP100.dll is so I don't know where to start to solve the problem.  Help, please!
