My friends recommended me to download Dolphin Emulator to play some Game Cube and Nintendo Wii games on my computer. However, after the installation when I tried to start the emulator it gave me an error message about msvcp140.dll is missing and that I need to reinstall the program to fix it. Unfortunately, the reinstallation didn’t fix the issue so I decided to contact technical support of the software and they answered me pretty quickly. They told me that I need to update all of the drivers on my computer and install the latest windows updates. Maybe I did something wrong, but it didn’t fix the msvcp140.dll is missing error upon launching Dolphin Emulator.
I started to search on the Internet for the solution and found various guides and tools. As for me, I didn’t want to use any third party applications to fix the problem, because I don’t want to download some virus or malware and get more troubles. So, I decided to try the simplest fix which doesn’t involve any third party application. Basically, I just downloaded the missing msvcp140.dll file from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcp140_dll and installed it by following the instruction from the downloading page. After that I just rebooted my computer and it solved msvcp140.dll is missing error in Dolphin emulator.
