I know that Adobe Flash Player is the most dangerous and full of exploits program, however I cannot watch movies or videos on YouTube without it. So I recently updated it on my google chrome and allowed it to install updates automatically. That was my biggest mistake I ever made. After a while my computer started to act strange. Some programs stopped responding, I noticed a great drop in system performance and also, whenever I try to launch some programs I am getting msvcp140.dll is missing from your computer error. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but I removed Flash Player and blocked the permission for auto-update. Anyway the msvcp140.dll is missing error still bothered me for a while, until I found the solution.
It wasn’t quite simple to find the solution. I’ve tried a lot of suggested guides and tutorials, some of them included some system registry modifications and stuff like that. However, it was complex and not useful, or maybe it just didn’t work for me. Anyway, I found a much simpler and faster solution that doesn’t involve any advanced computer knowledge. So, I simply downloaded missing msvcp140.dll from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcp140_dll and then just followed the installation instruction provided on the downloading page. In short, you will just have to copy the file into the system folder and that’s it, now everything should work fine.
