Finally Mafia 3 was released. Despite the fact that the game has lots of bugs and negative reviews, I have purchased it because I am the real fan of Mafia games series. Anyway, right after the installation I have faced a problem related with api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll file. The system error appeared stating that api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from my computer and the only way to fix it is to reinstall the program. As you may have tried as well, the reinstallation didn’t solve the issue and the problem remained until I found one working solution that will save you a lot of time and efforts. There is no need to reinstall the game.
api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error is the operating system error and it is not directly related with Mafia 3 game. It is preventing the launch of the game, however it doesn’t mean that the game was installed incorrectly or something. api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is a Windows system library and it is supplied with the operating system. However, due to some facts and nature of the library it can easily get corrupted, damaged or even removed by your antivirus software. Anyhow, the fixing solution is quite easy: simply download api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll file from here: http://fix4dll.com/apimswincrtruntimel110_dll and install it by following the installation instructions that you can find on this website. Afterwards, it is recommended to reboot your computer and Mafia 3 should work as intended. With this small tutorial I hope to save some time of users who are having the same issue that I had.
