I had Photoshop LE, then CS2, then CS4 - they were rock solid. Then I got CS6 and it crashes regularly. Now it won't run. Msg: "Application failed to start because MSVCP110.dll was not found. Re-install may fix it." I did a re-install (from DVD), but have same problem. I am running Win XP ver 5.1 SP 3.
I am dead in the water.

Seems from searching on the web that its something that's installed as part of a visual studio C++ redistributable, and nothing to do with the Photoshop install.

See others who've not go it:

Try installing this:

Hopefully that will install it.

This appears to be caused by a recent Nik/Google plugin automatic update. Contact Nik/Google for a direct download of the updated plugins to resolve the issue.
