Caution: Watch out for safe sources on the Internet!
Not every download is safe. Probably everyone who has been on the Internet since yesterday knows that. But you should be especially careful with dll files. Such system-relevant files open doors. So if you introduce a virus at this very point, it could become critical. Therefore, look for safe portals for such downloads. We will also recommend you a site!
- Go to the website dll-files.com
- Download the file for your operating system (32bit or 64bit)
- Extract the zip and put the file on your desktop for temporary storage
- Click on “This PC” and go to the hard disk where your operating system is located
- Click into the folder “windows” and “System32”
- Drag the file into this folder
The file must now be “registered”:
- Press the Windows key + R
- Type the following command: regsvr32 msvcp140.dll
- Press OK
- Go to Microsoft’s website for Visual Studios downloads
- For Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2022, download the version for your architecture (X64 for 64bit, X86 for 32bit)
- Install the file and follow the instructions
If there are still problems, restart your computer once.
Not so hard at all or? Working with system files always seems very complicated at first, but it’s actually just a download and a command to fix this problem.
