After the installation of FIFA 18 that I’ve purchased on Origin I expected to enjoy the gameplay but instead I got some system error with the following text: “The program can’t start because msvcp140.dll is missing from your computer.” The reinstallation of the game didn’t solve the problem and I was about to get my money back for the game. The last hope was the EA support, however they didn’t meet my expectations. They suggested me to install the files from the vcredist folder, but it didn’t work either. I went further and started to search for the people who have the same issue with msvcp140.dll is missing error. On the EA forum I found a lot of topics where people were asking for help to resolve this issue, but the EA staff was replying the same thing to everyone.
Instead of looking on EA forum I started to google about the msvcp140.dll is missing error and found a lot of information regarding this issue. Many users have that error and not only upon launching FIFA 18 but in other games and applications. Some users, were able to fix the issue by reinstalling the Microsoft® Visual Studio 2015. Anyhow, I’ve tried the easier solution and it worked for me. I downloaded the msvcp140.dll library from here: https://fix4dll.com/msvcp140_dll and installed it according to the instructions provided on the website. After reboot my FIFA 18 started to work and msvcp140.dll is missing error never bothered me again. I hope this guide will help you to fix msvcp140.dll is missing error.
