msvbvm50.dll Missing Error
Since this is an old dll file, Windows XP users usually do not encounter this problem as it was included in the later released service packs. Windows VISTA and Windows 7 operating systems do not have this file in the root directory. Hence, they encounter this error whenever any request for msvbvm50.dll is made by an executable process or program.
Some of the errors associated with msvbvm50.dl are:

Windows 7 and Windows Vista issues with msvbvm50.dll
As mentioned above the file is no more in use by the present day operating systems including Windows Vista and Win7. The applications which rely on this dll file for execution are still designed to work for these operating system but they face problems during the execution. The simple solution would be add this dll file to the root directory (System32) manually and then try reloading the dependent application.
Windows Dll files are very sensitive library files. Downloading these files from the warez sites or third party sites is not advisable. But as I was trying to locate the source to download this sile I was surprised not to find the official download link. We contacted Microsoft support team and they sent us this link. You cannot install the dll file individually but rather use msvbvm50.exe to install the dll file automatically in the required location.
