How to fix the API-MS-WIN-CRT-RUNTIME C++ Error
error api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll

If You are using some software packages that rely on DLL files or have been created using C++ then sometimes the files can be over written or corrupted when a program crashes or is updated.

To repair this problem you have a few options but generally the best option is to first check the Windows file system using:

sfc.exe /scannow and after that re install or repair the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019.

  • Mike thanks! You explained very clear what the solution is. I tried for hours in different ways. Yours was the only one that worked. The problems are : the outdated Windows version. Update Windows first. The the Microsoft Visual updates. Don't know what exactly worked but now my program is working!

  • I have a program which fails on Ntdll.dll – so if you find one for that…. install completes the main part, but then puts error reporting into a loop after logging the error
