    msvcr80.dll error in F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin

    My computer is giving an error message for msvcr80.dll in F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. I have just played the game without any errors on Windows Vista platform and after installing the same game on Windows 7 platform I am getting this error. I have purchased a official original version F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. Help me to fix the problem. Is it got any thing to do with Windows 7?

    Use Minimum Graphics

    From your given description about the error in FEAR II, I suggest you to use minimum graphics to launch the game. If the FEAR 2 game is able to continue after minimizing the use of graphics then the issue was because the video card drivers were not updated. I guess since you have switched from Windows Vista to Windows 7 you should check for all the driver software which are to be updated. This can be viewed from the Device Manager. If even after minimizing the graphics is not sorting the issue then probably your graphic card has gone bad.

    Improper Installation of FEAR-II

    The error for msvcr80.dll file indicates that the installation of FEAR-II was improper. The file msvcr80.dll is either corrupted or is missing. For you to solve this error I prefer you to re-install the game. Also when you re-install the game check for any error messages if displayed during the installation process. Verify that your CD/DVD Drive is functioning properly in terms of reading dat from the CD/DVD.

    Use only one monitor

    The game has short-coming that has been noted by a number of users who tend to deploy more than one monitor screen for the single game. It is been noted that the game crashes or freezes when played with two monitors on same system. Disconnect if any secondary monitor is used. If the desktop icon of the game cause the error try using the Start Menu icon to play the game.

    Can be corrected in two ways

    1) re-install the game

    2) Update your directx from Microsoft's official website
