The program can't start because MSVCP90.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Had that error, couldn't get rid of it. So I reinstalled.

Ran the launcher again, patched up to 1.2, and now whenever I hit, "Play" I get that same error every time. I've googled and even tried reinstalling the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 file like recommended. I've tried running as admin, I have ran the fixlauncher. I have done memory tests. Someone throw me a bone here. This is ridiculous.

Any help here? I'm running out of options and patience.

Step 4 says reinstall the program that uses this file. That'd be SWTOR. If you haven't already, try uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

I already did reinstall, I said that in the second line :P

I guess I may have to just reinstall windows, which is not on my want-to-do list
