Every time I tried to install Overwatch on my Windows 10 64 bit from its official Battle.Net Launcher, I was getting an error message stating that api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from my computer error. Everything worked fine when I played free trial, so I went ahead to download and purchase the full version of the game. I decided to remove the game and start the reinstallation all over again, but I was unable to complete it because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error kept on appearing during the reinstallation. In a bid to remove the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll cannot be found error in Overwatch, I updated all my drivers, DirectX and went as far as checking for the newly installed Windows updates, however nothing seemed to work. I tried getting in touch with Blizzard to help me out, but that didn’t work either.
Anybody who has ever experienced one of these .dll is missing or cannot be found error understands what I mean, they’re not easy to resolve and most of the answers you’ll get from websites and forums are designed to deceive users into installing some malware all disguised as .dll files. Nevertheless, I went through Blizzard’s official forum and discovered that lots of users out there also experienced the same api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error during installation. Though am not really sure which, but either a staff or one of the forum’s old veterans, proffered a working solution that involved downloading the corrupt files on your system folder and replacing them. With that in mind, I decided to download api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll from https://fix4dll.com/apimswincrtruntimel110_dll. You can follow the installation instructions on the website if you’re unclear about how to go about it. Once you complete the installation, reboot your system and everything will be fine.
