MSVCP140.dll is missing in my Win 10

I just installed the WordPress app but it will not start because it says the MSVCP140.dll is missing.

Where can I get its replacement?

This issue might have occurred due to corrupted/ missing system files. Try the troubleshooting steps below and check if it helps.

Step 1: I suggest you to download and install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 and check if it resolves the issue.

Step 2: Also, I suggest you to run SFC scan and check if it helps.

System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected.

Follow the below steps:

  1. Right click on the Start button, click on Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit Enter.
  3. After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.
