How to fix api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll is missing error in Windows 10

Few weeks ago my parents presented me some used HP touch Envy TS 17 laptop and I was very happy with it and everything was working great. However, few days after I decided to install some games on it and when I was trying to run a game (laptop comes with NVIDIA GEFORCE graphics card embedded) the following messages popped up: api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Please reinstall the program to fix the problem. After that message the game had crashed. I have tried to reinstall the game and also have installed all the updates and even tried installing a new BIOS. I have also tried installing all the redistributable and windows updates. However, that didn’t help. I clean booted the system and have also tried installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 package, however, even this didn’t seem to work. During the Setup Progress, it fully processed but didn’t progress any further. The same messages pop up after I tried running the game again.
