    I have found a way to fix “api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing” error showing up in many games (and unability to install “microsoft visual C++ 2015” (or 2017) giving 0x********* unspecified error in windows without service pack installed). Install this program

    and copy all dll files from “C:UsersComputernameAppDataLocalProgramsMicrosoft VS Code” into game directory overwriting whats there (remember to make backup of all dll files before)
