A quick google search brings this up.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18797624/msvcr100-dll-not-found-on-android-studio-launch.

Follow the instructions there. Or to make it simple, install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (either x86 or x64 depending on your operation system)

Thank you that worked.
