"I’m getting a missing MSVCP71.DLL error when starting CellProfiler Analyst"

This error seems to occur only on Windows 7 computers. Download the attached ZIP file and copy the DLL file to your C:\Windows\System32 folder, then restart CellProfiler Analyst.

Dear Mark,

I have just started using CellProfiler and have been trying to install CellProfiler Analyst. I have tried putting the attached .dll file into the Windows System32 folder as suggested, restarted the computer and tried to start Analyst, but I keep getting the same message. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise, 64 bit. Any ideas?

I have no idea what I’m doing yet, but CellProfiler looks great! :smiley:




Hi Nicky,

Try the suggestion here, and let us know if it works. If so, we’ll update the FAQ accordingly.



I love the software so much. Thanks!!

My question are:

  1. For the scatterplot, Could i edit the unit scale showed in the axis? For example, if there are 12 units between 0 to 12 on the x-axis. Could I edit the plot to just show 6 unit marks between 0-12?

  2. On the scatterplot, after I select a few cells and then click " show images in selection", my input image ( the whole picture with ~1000cells ) pops up. However, I don’t know where are the selected. Could you advise me how to locate the selected cell on the input image.

Thanks for your time developing software and answering question
