Error “The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem” (SOLVED)

When you try to run the program, you may encounter the following errors:

  • The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem
  • The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem
  • The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem

That is, the program cannot run because the VCRUNTIME140.dll, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll, and MSVCP140.dll files are not found.

In this case, it is useless to follow the prompts of the system and reinstall the program.

Also, in no case should you look for the library files VCRUNTIME140.dll and MSVCP140.dll on dubious sites and try to add them to the system.

The reason for the error is that the program requires Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022. This is a completely free set of libraries that you can download from the official Microsoft website. This file is the runtime for programs compiled with Visual Studio. This redistributable package contains all required libraries, including VCRUNTIME140.dll and MSVCP140.dll.

You can download Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022 from the official website at the following link: https://aka.ms/vs/17/release/VC_redist.x64.exe (this is a 64-bit version) and https:// aka.ms/vs/17/release/VC_redist.x86.exe (this is the 32-bit version)

Run the downloaded file by double-clicking, accept the license terms and complete the installation.

Immediately after installation, the problem with the missing files VCRUNTIME140.dll and MSVCP140.dll should disappear and the program that requires them should work as expected, without errors.

VCRUNTIME140.dll still not found after installing Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022

If after installing Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022 you still get an error with the missing VCRUNTIME140.dll file, then this means that in addition to the already installed version, you need to install a version of a different processor architecture.

For example, you installed the 64-bit version of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022, but you get a VCRUNTIME140.dll file missing error, which means that the application that needs the specified file is 32-bit and you need to install the 32-bit version of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022. Links to both versions are given above.
