How to fix api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a survival multiplayer game played online, which is similar to both DayZ and H1Z1 survival sandbox games. The game comprises of all the functions omitted from other games. I purchased this game despite the fact that I don’t usually go for early alpha releases. I braced myself to experience glitches as well as early access bugs. It didn’t occur to me that I would be unable to even launch the game. When I attempted to launch the game after the installation, I got the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer error message. I had no idea about how to go about fixing it, so I decided to check steam and different other forums in an attempt to find a solution.


I discovered that the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll error occurred because the system library which is normally installed with Microsoft redistributable was missing. However, I run a Windows 10 64 bit, so all of the Microsoft redistributables were already preinstalled in my system, and it never occurred to me that it would be required for new games. I carried out a manual download of api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll library from, which I installed into my system before I could fix the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error in my Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. The download page provides a good description of the installation procedure. I was then able to launch my PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds after rebooting my system without the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll error, thereby helping me enjoy my game.
