Windows 7: Error: Runtime Error! R6002 - Floating point support not loaded??

13 Jun 2012   #1

Error: Runtime Error! R6002 - Floating point support not loaded??

Titel of error: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Error: Runtime Error! (program path here) R6002 - Floating point support not loaded.


I've been experiencing a problem ever since i decided to re-install Windows 7 just to have a new fresh copy installed instead of one I've had installed for a year now.

Before Re-installing windows i never experienced this problem.

(I now have Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Whenever i Try to open, Some programs, (not all show this error)
(CCleaner, Snowbird, Windows media player classic. etc.)
Keep op showing this Error and they wont start.

I've been trying to find a solution to this problem for 2 days straight but didnt find one,

-I tried. Cleaning my registry with 4 different programs. (the only solution people give on this topic on the internet but wont work for me)
-Reinstalled windows7 ultimate about 6 times,
Everytime i tried to find out what was causing it by rebooting everytime i installed something or changed something and check if everything still worked.

The first time it started happening after i installed Directx 11
tried to uninstall it but was kinda unpossible even with third party software.
then i reinstalled windows and just left directx out.
then when i installed a program i installed before direct x but everything worked fine after i installed it before.
but this time after that install (Windows media player classic) it caused the error,
and i tried to find out by reinstalling windows and doing al of it step by step but it NEVER MADE ANY SENSE... =/

I just dont understand what is causing the problem..
there isnt a problem when in install windows, but very randomly,,
it starts showing this error.
then sometimes when i reinstall ccleaner, it will work until the next reboot,
and sometimes reinstalling it still wont make it work

it doesnt make sense,
i tried updating windows all the way.
tried different windows 7 install cd's

i've wasted 2 days dealing with this problem and it got me no-where so far.
i know there are more topics on this forum about this,
but everytime it was like: Try regisery cleaning with (random software i tried here),
and they were like FIXED LOL.
System restore point wont help since i reinstall my entire windows.

somebody ? does anyone have a slight idea,
when i come up with a solution i'll post it,
if it is actually me doing something wrong with the registy cleaning (im positive im not doing it wrong im a pretty advanced user, just never posted a question on a forum about software) then i'll delete this post,

i really dont understand this problem
please help..
my only solution is going back to XP or Ubuntu =/

First, uninstall all the programs that are giving you problems through Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program. Then, uninstall all Visual C++ Redistributables software through Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program.

Once you have finished uninstalling the software, install the following:
Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)
Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable (x86)
Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86)
Then install their updates through Windows Update. Then install the software again that you had been having problems with.

Also, stop using registry cleaners to try to fix problems; they just create more problems:
  • Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

    In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.
