With the release of Plays.tv version 1.15.x, we've seen some users getting a message that says, "Plays.tv.exe - Bad image" and says that a MSVCP .dll file is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.

It may look like this:

In order to fix this on your computer, you should try to install the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio.  The Visual C++ Redistributable Packages install run-time components that are required to run C++ applications that are built by using Visual Studio. 

  Here is a list of .dll files, and which version of Microsoft package you should install. Choose the one that fits your specific error.

msvcp2010.dll -> part of MSVC 2010 runtime   Get the installer here (X86).

msvcp2012.dll -> part of MSVC 2013 runtime  Get the installer here.

msvcp2014.dll -> part of MSVC 2015 runtime  Get the installer here.
