Runtime DLL

The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer.

The problem is that the KB2999226 (Universal CRT) which is part of the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 failed to install.

Solution

Install Windows Updates:
Go to Start, choose Control Panel, then Windows Update
Check for updates and install all available updates.
After the updates are installed, restart your computer.
After the restart repeat the steps above again until no more updates are available.
Download the Visual C++ Redistributable:

For Windows 64-bit
Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (64-bit)
For Windows 32-bit
Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (32-bit)

Run the .exe file and select Uninstall
Run the .exe again and select Install
