Oh no...that dreaded .dll file is ruining everything

Post by 357mag »

I had this same issue when I tried to install a program called Guitar Pro 7. I tried opening Zeus after installing it and I saw this:

api-ms-win-crt-runtime-1l-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling and good luck with that...

Any tips how to solve this bugger? I'm using Windows 8.1 x64.

The name of the DLL suggests this is some sort of Microsoft C runtime issue.

Now that runtime dll has been causing trouble for decades and Microsoft has changed the way developers should handle this dll at least once or twice.

For early Windows the software had to install the official Microsoft runtime redistributable package .

For newer Windows the we just sit those dll files in the bin folder with the application (which is what Zeus does now).

Now the latest Zeus is built using the Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 runtime so the first thing I would try is running the official Microsoft runtime redistributable package for that version which can be found here:

PS: I came across this link which suggests the fix above might work, but if not try the Windows Update described in the link.
