Error: The program can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing...

I am trying to install SQL Developer on my Windows-64 laptop. I downloaded the Windows-64 version of SQL Developer from, which only comes WITHOUT an included JDK. I installed a JDK separately, but now when I try to launch SQL Developer, I get an error:

The program can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I went to the Microsoft web site, and a forum indicated I needed to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) to get the dll. I did this, but I still get the same error.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
