The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing


  1. Update for Universal C Runtime Worked for me too. Restart wasn’t even required. Thank you

  2. I have really bad luck with these things, so I honestly was very skeptical when I tried this…but it worked like a charm. Thank you! 🙂

  3. 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)

  4. i use windows 7 and what should i try? can Update for Universal C Runtime work for my OS? i cannot open icloud & adobe so please if anyone can give me an advice:)
