VCRUNTIME140.dll missing?

Hi I just tried to open sketchup make 2017 and I get a window saying:
“The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. try reinstalling the program to fix the problem” I tried to install the program (VCRUNTIME140.dll) I know this question will seem dumb But are thet asking me to install VCRUNTIME140.dll or sketchuup 17?

It seems I cannot because it says it is already installed, but when I do a search on my computer for: VCRUNTIME140.dll in my computer I can only find it in a blender file, which I do not understand. Where should “VCRUNTIME140.dll” be?

download and install the redistributable of the required MS C++ 2015 runtime library x64 manually, launch the installer by “rClick > Run as Admin”.

Thanks butI have tried that it says the ptogram is already installed

  • uninstall all MS C++ runtime libraries of the system
  • restart Windows
  • install the MS C++ 2015 runtime library x64 (see above)

Thanks very much sorted now

you could tag my reply as solving it, thx.
