Finally, the Divinty Original Sin 2 has been released. After a year of waiting I can finally play the full version of the game. I used Steam to install the game, but was unable to launch it because of the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error. I got the same error message when I attempted launching it from the game folder. Even after I reinstallation, I was still faced with the same issue that prevented me from launching the game. This was very strange to me because I played early alpha version on this same system just a few weeks ago. After investigating on different forums, I discovered that the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error affects a lot of users and has nothing to do with the game or the operating system.
It took me a little while to discover that the cause of the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error is the fact that the library cannot be found in the system folder. If you’re not aware, Windows comes equipped with different preinstalled dII libraries that help you execute different applications. But the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll library somehow got lost on my computer. I read that it is sometimes caused by malware attacks or library overuse. The truth is that; I was lucky to discover a solution that doesn’t require me to install any additional software or for me to reinstall the operating system. So if you want to fix the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is not found error, all you have to do is to download and install the library from https://fix4dll.com/apimswincrtruntimel110_dll using this guide https://fix4dll.com/how_to_install_dll_files . After this, you can reboot your system and launch your game without the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error.
