To solve the "MSVCR100.dll not found" error, you'll need to download the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable from the Microsoft website.

Choose which one to download based on your operating system:

32 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555
64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=14632

Im on a pc. (Error 0x80010135: Path too long) was the first error while extracting. When done extracting i tried to open android studio and it says "This application has failed to start because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problrm." So I click ok then it says "Error launching android studio, Failed to load JVM DLL C:\Program Files\ Java\jdk1.7.0_67\jre. If you already have 32-bit JDK installed, define a JAVA_HOME variable in Computer>system properties> System settings> Environment Variables" this is where i get stuck

did you uninstall the current installation that would not open before reinstalling? if not try uninstalling, restarting your PC, then installing again

i just did an uninstall, then restarted my computer and installed again but this part shows up again "This application has failed to start because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problrm." So I click ok then it says "Error launching android studio, Failed to load JVM DLL C:\Program Files\ Java\jdk1.7.0_67\jre. If you already have 32-bit JDK installed, define a JAVA_HOME variable in Computer>system properties> System settings> Environment Variables"
