Windows 7: E_YARNDKE.exe error MSVCR80.dll is missing

E_YARNDKE.exe error MSVCR80.dll is missing

Kept getting these messages after installing an Epson WF-3640 printer.
I tried re-installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and 2010 re-distributable packages - no joy.

I eventually found that MSVCR80.dll resided in C:\Windows\SysWOW64
and that E_YARNDKE.exe resided in C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\x64\3 along with many dll files.

As a GUESS I copied the file C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MSVCR80.dll into C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\x64\3 and the errors went away.

I did contact Epson support, but so far they are just saying it's a "Please search the internet. This is a Microsoft issue." Some support.

I believe this is in all probability an Epson issue, but at least I SEEM to have a work around - though it is ugly.

Hope this helps someone else out there.

I later found an even better fix I think.
It came from
I will paste the fix part just in case the original link breaks in the future, since it was very challenging to find the correct things to do..

Step 1: Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Programs & Features and uninstall any drivers related to the printer.

Step 2: Create a restore point. You may refer to the following link for creating restore point:

Step 3: Boot your computer in the safe mode.

Step 4: Browse to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\w32x86 & delete its contents.

Step 5: Browse to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS & delete its contents.

Step 6: Edit the registry as follows:

Click Start and type in Run in Start Search and press Enter. Type in regedit and click OK.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86

View the list of subkeys (subfolders). There should only be the following subkeys:
•Print Processors

If any other subkey is present, then delete it.

2. Navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers & then look for Version 2 or Version 3, subkey. Delete the entries except Microsoft Shared Fax Driver & Microsoft XPS Document Viewer under the –Version-x.

3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\ \Monitors and View the list of subkeys. There should only be the following subkeys for the default print monitors:

•Local Port
•Microsoft Shared Fax Monitor
•Standard TCP/IP Port
•USB Monitor
•WSD Port

If, any other subkey is present then take registry backup & delete it.
Step 7: Exit the registry editor. If the printer is still connected then unplug it & restart the computer.

Step 8: Click Start and type in Run in Start Search and press Enter. Type in services.msc and click OK.

Check if the Print Spooler service is Started & Automatic.

Also check for the Dependencies for the Print Spooler service: Right click on the service and click Properties and then click on the Dependencies tab. Make sure all the dependency services are running.

Step 9: Try to install the printer drivers again from the manufacturer’s website.
