Unable to open Office 2016 because of VCRUNTIME.dll missing

vcruntime140_1.dll was not found office 2016 and 2019 . Unable to open Office 2016 because of VCRUNTIME.dll missing/ I’m trying to open some apps (Melodyne and Adobe Animate), but everytime I try, it says ‘The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.’ I’ve looked online, and tried everything I could find, but the error still shows up. I’ve noticed it’s only been showing up after I accidentally got a trojan, and it’s been showing up ever since. If anyone can give me some tips, it would be greatly appreciated.


Step by step:

1- Download the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019


Install ít and continute to download and install:

Note Visual C++ 2015, 2017 and 2019 all share the same redistributable files.

For example, installing the Visual C++ 2019 redistributable will affect programs built with Visual C++ 2015 and 2017 also. However, installing the Visual C++ 2015 redistributable will not replace the newer versions of the files installed by the Visual C++ 2017 and 2019 redistributables.

This is different from all previous Visual C++ versions, as they each had their own distinct runtime files, not shared with other versions.
