Runtime.dll error

If you receive a runtime.dll error, this means the 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 failed to install.


  1.  Install the latest Windows Updates 
  2.  If the updates did not restart your computer, restart it
  3. Repeat step 1 and 2 until all updates are installed as not all updates will install all at once.
  4. Download/install the Visual C++ Redistributable: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads
