    Encountered SQL Developer Error 'Can't Start because MSVCR71.dll is missing


      Thanks for looking at this entry

      I have an older version of SQL developer and it suddenly won't run with the following error

      'Can't Start because MSVCR71.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program.........'

      And it is indeed missing. So, rather than download what might be a virus from the internet (new version of MSVCR71.dll ), I tried to do a new install of SQL developer from:


      I put it on my D drive, unzipped and tried to launch.

      It asked where I had java.exe (full path name). I found it at C:\Windows\System32\java.exe

      Now I encounter: Cannot find J2SE SDK installed at path C:\Windows\System32\java.exe

      Please help
