Fix "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" Error

Fix "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" Error
While opening any app in your windows machine, if you encounter an error – "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" then you need to troubleshoot a few things which I'll let you know about in this post. But before troubleshooting the issue, let me tell you the reason behind this error. This error messages pops up when you try to open an application that requires VCRUNTIME140.DLL file but due to any corruption or data loss, it is not able to access the file. VCRUNTIME140.DLL is a Microsoft C Runtime Library application extension which is located in the System32 folder of the C:/Windows directory. It's size is around 86KB and it is installed by Microsoft Visual Studio. Any missing file from Microsoft Visual Studio runtime library can case such errors to be popped up. Let's see how to fix this error:
  • First of all, run the following commands in cmd with admin rights.
sfc /scannow
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • If the problem is not fixed by running the above commands, you can try to download the missing dll file from internet and paste it in the location where it is supposed to be, usually it is C:/Windows/System32. After pasting the dll file, restart the computer and check if the application starts working.
    • The other possible solution is to install the latest from Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package from here.
    • Try to re-register the dll file. Read the process Here.
    • If the above two steps don't work, then try uninstalling the appplication completely using Revo Uninstaller Pro and delete all the remaining leftovers of the application and reinstall the application. Most of the times, new Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages get installed at the time of the installation of the application itself.
    • If none of the above steps worked, then repair your windows OS with the installation media or perform an in-place system upgrade which will repair all the corrupted files of your operating system.

    api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing
    MSVCR110.dll is missing
