The Windows 7 msvcrtd dll is one of the more important Windows modules. It is a dynamic link library file with .dll extension. The file is installed in the Windows registry along with all other Windows program files. We normally never see it working. It runs on the background and helps larger programs to run. But sometimes we see the file causing issues for us.
For example, many of us have programs like Maya 2013 and Maya 2012 installed on our Windows 7 64 bits. But we see that only Maya 2012 works. Maya 2013 keeps crashing on starting. Reinstalling the program makes no difference. We are left looking for a solution. Well, we can find what is causing the error by checking the Windows Event Viewer. It is a prebuilt Windows program that records Windows errors. We can type ‘event’ in the Windows search bar. The Event Viewer option will show up. After opening it, we can check the error logs. We will see that the problem event name is appcrash. The faulting application is maya.exe. The fault module is msvcrt and the exception code is 0xc0000005.
So what does it mean? Well, maya.exe is the executable file for Maya 2013. It means that it helps to execute or run the program on Windows. But it requires data from the Windows msvcrt file to do so. The error logs show that maya.exe is failing to run. That means it is failing to use the msvcrt file. This can only happen if the file is damaged. So what is the fix? Do we need to buy a new PC or do a clean installation of Windows? No, we simply need to replace the Windows 7 msvcrtd .dll file. An msvcrt dll fix tool can help us remove and install a new file.
We can also use the same tool if we are getting zune.exe appcrash issues on Windows 7. On trying to start Zune, we might get an error message. The message might show Microsoft Zune has stopped working.The event viewer will show zune.exe appcrash caused by msvcrt. Replacing the file is the solution.
