I’ve recently discovered that PHP was updated to the PHP v7 version. As I was working with php for a long time I immediately downloaded the new version. Developers promised plenty of innovations and increased operating speed. After installing php7 I was not able to launch it because of vcruntime140.dll is missing from your computer error. That was really weird because the previous version of PHP was working fine. At first I thought that after deinstalling the previous version of PHP I accidentally removed some important library from my computer. Anyway I started looking for the solution on the Internet and pretty quick I found one.
Vcruntime140.dll library is a part of a package of Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 and is used for by many applications including browsers, editors of various kinds, players, games and software like PHP7, etc. In general, this file is useful and necessary in many situations. By being so popular, this file is a perfect target for viruses and malware, therefore, usually they replace it with malicious analogues and in the end the file becomes missing, corrupted or damaged, which will not allow you to run any application that require vcruntime140.dll for proper operation. So, how to fix vcruntime140.dll is missing error in PHP7 or in any other application on game? Very simply, just download the library from here: http://fix4dll.com/vcruntime140_dll and install it into the system folder. The installation instruction can be found on the website as well.
