Fixed: Solidworks 2015 can't start because MSVCR110.dll is missing

Today I got an urgent call from a customer with this error when launching SolidWorks.

The program can't start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

We were able to fix it by downloading and reinstalling the Visual C++ 2012 Runtime redistributable.  Here is the download link from Microsoft.

This customer is on Windows 10 x64, so we used the 64 bit version.  If you're on the 32 bit version there is a download available for that too.
