I cannot say that the Windows 8.1 is the best operating system, however I prefer it instead of Windows 10. Anyway, yesterday I got some stealthy updates and after that I started having msvcp140.dll is missing from your computer error. It usually happens whenever I try to run Media Player Classic and sometimes with other programs too. I have tried to update codecs, reinstall MPC, but it didn’t fix the problem. I think Microsoft is trying to force me to use the new Operating system. Anyway, I opened a discussion on one of the IT forums and users provided me with various guides and tricks. I’ve tried to remove the stealthy update, boot in secure mode, edit registry and other things, but couldn’t fix msvcp140.dll is missing on Windows 8.1.
After a while one user with completely positive reputation advised me to simply install the missing library manually. I had no idea that I can install dll libraries on my own. So, here is what I’ve done to get rid of msvcp140.dll is missing on Windows 8.1. I went to the reliable website and downloaded msvcp140.dll file (http://fix4dll.com/msvcp140_dll). After that I just copied it into the system folder and registered it. The complete installation guide was kindly provided on the downloading page. After reboot I was able to launch programs without msvcp140.dll is missing error.
Feel free to share this guide with your friends. Dll errors can be easily solved and it’s not rocket science!
