Windows 7

When starting certain programs on Windows 7 I"m getting the following error message:

The program can"t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer


Clicking "OK" dismisses the dialog & allows the software to lớn run without any problems, but the error repeats next time I run the software.

You watching: Windows 7

Unfortunately reinstalling the software does not fix the problem.

This is getting very annoying. How bởi I resolve this?


What causes this error and how vị I fix it?

It happens when applications built using the Windows 10 SDK are executed on earlier version of Windows.

This creates a dependency on Windows 10 Universal CRT (C Runtime).

To fix it, install the Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows:
