Issue installing SketchUp Pro - due to missing VCRUNTIME140_1.dll


I have been experiencing a difficult times installing SketchUp Pro, either 2020 or 2021, due to VCRUNTIME140_1.dll missing.

I have sent multiple tickets, but with absolutely no response back.

I tried installing C++, but it failed to do so automatically and manually.

My OS is Windows 10 Pro.

Could you kindly explain to me, in concise, simple steps how to fix the issue to enable me to install SketchUp Pro, please?

Kind regards,


download the MS VC++ 2015 redist installer form here (the x64 version), launch by “rightclick > Run as Admin”, install SU afterwards.

I have some problems…
Try to install SU2020 on win 7 (x64), and got this error (VCRUNTIME140_1.dll missing)
When i download and try to install (MS VC++ 2015) PC says, that more fresh version already install.
So i cant install (MS VC++ 2015) and SU2020 dont work…
Maybe somebody have an idea, how to fix this problem.

  • unistall all MS VC++ versions from your system
  • restart Windows
  • install the MS VC++ 2015 redistribution installation from above
  • run the SketchUp setup routine by “right-click > Run as Admin…”
