Before purchasing the newest version of Resident Evil 7 I have tested in for free on Steam and was quite impressed. The demo version felt like a horror game and I really liked it. After finishing the demo, I immediately purchased the game and installed it on my Windows 10 PC. After the installation I have launched the game but the black screen appeared for a moment and then system error popped up stating that api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from my computer, please reinstall the application. Well, at first I thought that something went wrong during the installation, so I reinstalled the game, but the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error appeared again and didn’t let me to run the game properly. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any proper solution for this error so I tried to solve it by myself and it worked.
I was confused about api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error, because I thought this .dll file belongs to Resident Evil 7 game, but after some researches I found that it is system library and some games and applications using it for their own needs. To fix the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error I just had to download api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll file from here: https://fix4dll.com/apimswincrtruntimel110_dll. After that I just installed it by following the instruction provided on the downloading page and Resident Evil 7 started to work.
Hope this helps you to fix api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error on your computer. Don’t forget to like and share to help others.
