Did you try to install/reinstall Visual C++ 2013 and Visual C++ Redistributable Package?

Btw maybe I'm wrong but I don't think you can download DLL files from Microsoft.

So be careful with that file you downloaded.

Downloading DLL files is a bad idea. Usually doesn't fix the problem because you are missing more not just the DLL file which causes the error message. And sometimes those sites that offer DLL files contain virus.

So that should be the last attempt to fix the problem not the first. Unless so can get the file from your friend or from your other PC.

Thanks for the response. I will try your link. What I installed was a link similar to yours on Microsoft.I assumed the dll file was part of it I may have been mistaken. It was defiantly from the Microsoft site tho.

Do I need to do anything else after I've installed the update?


The one installed was the Visual Studio 2015,2017,2019

I dunno what did you download.
It is a vcredist_x64.exe, and it installs the dll-s too.

I'm not sure it required but I would do a PC reboot.
Anything else only if it doesn't fix the problem.

I assume that is Visual C++ Redistributable Package and not Visual Studio.

Yeah that's the wrong one.
You need 2013 that contains msvcr120.dll
2015 has MSVCP140.dll
