“VCRUNTIME140.dll is Missing” is an error that can occur on Microsoft Windows computers. This error usually pops up after a Windows update or an unsuccessful installation of any specific program. VCRUNTIME140.dll is a file used by Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio. If any of the C ++ package constituents are removed accidentally, corrupted, or fail to function, the programs that require C++ may not respond and fail with this error.
To address this issue, we recommend a fresh install of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio. You can download the package from here. Please note to download the package compatible with a 64-bit system.
If reinstalling doesn’t fix it, you can try repairing the package by uninstalling and reinstalling them. The steps below will walk you through repairing the package.

2. Double-click on the version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 20xx Redistributable (x64) entry and choose Repair.
3. Continue repairing the additional VC++ installs as required (from older to newer).
