Windows 7 is old but gold operating system. I am still sitting on the service pack 1 and I am happy. Every program worked fine and I don’t have issues with low memory or blue screens. In my opinion it is the best version of Windows. However, I am always getting those annoying pop-up messages that my FREE copy of Windows 10 is ready to be downloaded and installed. And one day it really irritated me so I downloaded some program to get rid of those messages and block the Windows 10 update. However, I think I downloaded some virus, because after using it I started having msvcp140.dll is missing error literally upon launch of any program.
Of course, I have removed that tool that caused the error but the system error msvcp140.dll is missing still remained and I had no idea what to do. I’ve tried system restore to previous date and some registry fix programs, but nothing helped me. In addition, I’ve installed lots of browser add-ons and extensions that I don’t wanted. So, I started to look for the solution on forums and pretty soon I found one simple fixing method. It doesn’t require any advanced computer knowledge. You just need to download the missing msvcp140.dll file from here: http://fix4dll.com/msvcp140_dll and install it by following the instructions provided on the downloading page. After that I just rebooted my computer and yes, the system error msvcp140.dll is missing disappeared.
I hope that this will be useful for people like me, who are sitting on Windows 7 and don’t want to upgrade to the Windows 10. Feel free to like and share to spread the word.
