VCRUNTIME140.dll missing

I have a problem when trying to install apache 2.4 on my windows 10. It always shows the error that VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing. I have checked other threads and found out that installing the 2015 Visual c++ Redistributables x64/x86 always solves the problem but I have both installed and I still have this problem. Are there any other solutions?


You need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3 RC, please find the link here, choose between the 32bit or the 64bit. Reinstall the apache 2.4 and error should gone.

I had the same issue after installing wamp on windows 10.This worked for me. Download VCRUNTIME140.DLL Copy the dll file to C:\Windows\System32 using administrative privileges. Try reinstalling apache.

Download and install the proper version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3 RC regarding your hardware architecture (x86 / x64). Use the link below: Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3 RC

On Windows 6 X64, got an error 500 on any PHP files, installing the 2015 Visual c++ Redistributables x64 solved my problem.

If you are using Microsoft Visual C/C++ and you have already downloaded VCRUNTIME140.DLL, Go to Project Properties->Configuration Properties-> C/C++ -> Code Generation, Set Runtime Library Multi-threaded (/MT)

I'v already had VC 2015 Redist on my PC but files were not copied into Windows\System32. So I copied missing files directly to this folder. A thing that I should mention is since I compiled my application in X86 mode I copied them from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\redist\x86 not C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\redist\x64 I know that this solution is not the ideal one, but it was a workaround for my case.

Remove apache 2.4 from your pc Download VCRUNTIME140.dll from this link Copy VCRUNTIME140.dll file and paste it inside to Windows/System32 Finally reinstall apache and run
