I have a Windows PC, and once when I tried to open some program, it kept showing this error, “api ms win crt runtime 1 1 0 DLL missing.” My Windows is up to date, and I have also run a security scan which showed that there are no malware or viruses, yet I get this error. So how can I fix this?

“api ms win crt runtime 1 1 0 DLL” is a system file that is part of Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable for Visual Studio. You are getting this error because you do not have the DLL file, so the software that is trying to open it is not able to and, hence giving you this error.

Since you are saying that you have updated Windows and there is no Malware you can follow these steps.

Uninstall and reinstall Visual C + + redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 directly from Microsoft. Make sure that the version of it is compatible with your computer. After its installation, open the program that was showing this error and see if the problem persists or repair the version of the redistributable package. Go to Control Panel, then Programs and Features. Click on “Microsoft Visual C + + 2015 redistributable” and then on “Change.” Follow the instructions in the repair wizard, and it’s done.

The full error reads:

“The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”

If you keep receiving this error when you try to install a program, one reason is that one or more Windows updates have not been applied. To fix this, first thing to do is install any Windows updates. Click “Start,” “Control Panel” then “Windows Update.” Check for any Windows updates and install any available updates.

Once the update is installed, restart the computer then repeat the same steps to check and install Windows Update until no more updates are available. Once all updates are installed and no more updates are available, download Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. Just click the “Download” button and select your correct version.

If you have 32-bit Microsoft Windows, download “vc_redist.x86.exe” or “vc_redist.x64.exe” if you have 64-bit Microsoft Windows.
