Fortnite was released on the 25th of July 2017 and yet players are still facing bugs, optimisation problems and glitches today. A few days ago, I tried installing the game again hoping that the developers have been able to fix the errors, but no such luck. Immediately after installing it, I received an error message stating that api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing and could not be found on my system. The error message kept on popping up each time I tried to start the game. I contacted support and they informed me that the problem was with the operating system not the game, so they couldn’t help me. I decided to search for a solution on my own on different game forums. After searching for a while I found a working solution.
The biggest problem you’re likely to encounter when searching for a fix for api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing error, is the numerous tutorials and guides promoting different malware and software, which is mostly from users with just one post on the forum or YouTube. My advice is that you ignore such and go with guides from users that are reliable. So, I got the fix from forum moderator and his advice was to visit https://fix4dll.com/apimswincrtruntimel110_dll, download the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll library, and then install it in the appropriate system folder. You’ll find installation instructions on the download page. It’s actually quite straight forward; all you have to do is copy the file and paste it in the appropriate system folder.
