Here are some simple approaches:

Ways To Fix VCRUNTIME140.dll Missing Error

#1) Run System File Checker (SFC) Scan

Windows offers its users the feature to fix the corrupt files in the memory.
Windows System File Checker makes it easier to locate the corrupt files in the system and then fix them automatically.

Follow the steps mentioned below to initiate a System File Checker Scan on your system:

a) Click on the “Start” button and search for “Windows PowerShell” as shown in the image below. Make a right-click and click on “Run as Administrator”.

Run System File Checker (SFC) Scan

b) A blue window will be visible as shown below.

#2) Re-Register VCRUNTIME140.dll File

This is the most efficient way, as by re-registering the DLL file and restarting the system, the error can be fixed.

Follow the steps mentioned below to fix this error:

a) Click on the search bar and type “Command Prompt“. Right-click on the option. Then click on “Run as Administrator” as shown in the image below.

Re-Register VCRUNTIME140.dll File

b) A window will open as shown in the image below. Make sure that the system32 is displayed.

paste the code

d) Now enter the code “regsvr32 VCRUNTIME140.dll” in the Command Prompt to re-register the .dll file.


#3) Download And Replace File Manually

The DLL files can be downloaded directly and then replaced in the application folder.

Follow the steps mentioned below to download and manually replace the files:

a) Click here or visit the official website of DLL-Files to download the .dll file as shown in the image below and click on “Download”.

Download and Replace File Manually

b) The file will be opened in ZIP format. Now click on “Extract To” and select the folder of the file which is unable to open as shown in the image below and click on “OK”.

a) Open Control Panel and click on “Uninstall a program” as shown in the image below.

Uninstall a program

b) From the list of programs, select the program to be uninstalled and click on “Uninstall”.

uninstall

c) Visit the website of the application and download the file again.

setup complete

#7) Update Drivers

The drivers are mainly the root cause of such errors in the system because the bug in the driver brings many errors such as BSoD error.
Therefore, the initial step to fix this error must include updating your drivers to the latest version.

There can even be a possibility that the user might have updated the driver, and still, he/she is facing this error. In such cases, it is better to roll back the driver to the previous version.


a) Right-click on the “Windows” icon and click on “Device Manager,” as shown in the image below.

b) The Device Manager window will open, as shown in the image below.

c) Right-click on all drivers one by one and click on “Update Driver”.

update driver - VCRUNTIME140 dll Not Found fixed

Likewise, update all the drivers one after the other.

#8) System Restore

System Restore is an efficient way to fix errors. To fix this error, the system can be restored to its earlier version.
There may be a possibility that the system may malfunction due to new updates, and therefore, the user must remove these new updates.
how to create a system restore point in detail and perform a system restore at the time of BSoD error, please refer to the “System Restore” section of the article: Windows 10 Critical Process Died.

#9) Scan Your System. Run Windows Defender Scan

Windows offers its users the feature to scan the system and monitor the condition of the system and the hardware of the system. This feature is termed Windows Defender.

Follow the steps mentioned below to initiate a Windows defender scan:

a) Open Settings and click on ‘Update & Security’ as shown in the image below.

update and security - VCRUNTIME140 dll Not Found fixed

b) Click on “Windows Defender” from the list of options and then click on “Open Windows Defender Security Center”.

Windows defender - VCRUNTIME140 dll Not Found fixed

c) Click on “Quick Scan”.

scan history - VCRUNTIME140 dll Not Found fixed

d) The system will check for viruses or threats in the system and the system will restart.

Often the SFC will solve the problem. It could be that you have some services disabled. You have me curious now. Have you tried saving recent work and personal files to a separate drive and running System Restore afterward?

Thank you for providing me with this information. It might be of some help. Evidently you are running a CPU typically used in server systems and not really a standard domestic end user laptop. Although it isn't impossible to game on Xeon CPUs (people do it all the time) it really isn't a chip designed for that sort of functionality. That aside, you have some impressive storage and I'm almost beginning to wonder if the 350 Mb file you're getting on the M.2 drives isn't for the purpose of RAID, which isn't uncommon in server based systems. I highly recommend saving all your valuable data to the 2TB drive you mentioned before reinstalling a fresh operating system. Make absolutely sure that your operating system will install on the NVMe array (if indeed that is what it is). Personally, I don't like taking chances when installing an operating system on a unit with multiple drives so I disconnect all other drives that I won't be putting my operating system on and reconnect them again after the fresh operating system is installed. Should you decide to do this then make sure you turn off the unit, remove the battery, and then pull the 2TB drive.

Leave the NVMe drives in the laptop.

I have a sneaky suspsicion you might be running NVMe in RAID and that might be why your system is looking for a server dll file. This, coupled with the fact that you are using a cloned copy of an OS from a different unit, could explain a lot. Once you're operating system is installed and updated you can turn off the laptop, remove the battery again, put back the 2TB drive and reconnect it, put back the battery and the cover plate for the 2TB drive (if it uses one) and turn the system back on. Windows 8.1 will let you make a shortcut on your desktop to the 2TB storage drive.

One more thing. Make sure you go to the Dell website and get all the drivers that you need that apply to the make and model of your laptop. If you are indeed already set up for RAID in your BIOS I would advise looking for the Dell version of the Rapid Storage Technology driver. NVMe in RAID is quite impressive once you get it working right. By all means let me know how it works out for you. Have fun! :)

hi reading your last post it gave me an idea I checked my M2 drives and found loads of file errors so I checked to see if they were none rade like my 2 tb drive but they wasn't and I could not find out how to make them none raid so I moved my games onto the M2 and loaded genuine microsoft version of win 8.1 and bingo all is fine sofar I have twenty Dell drivers to load and set up then i will have a perfect laptop again. So I must thank you so much for your help i am most greatful to you. and by the way I spent seven months In Canada in 1992 in Ontario Hamilton and port Colbourne I hope to go back soon .

I am delighted to learn that this has all worked out for you. You did well to leave the M.2 in its original configuration. You will have blazing fast transfer speeds because of this. Be sure to keep your 2TB drive for storage purposes and I also recommend making a Windows backup of your operating system, a system image if at all possible. In addition to this make certain that your file history also writes to your 2TB drive if you're not using an external hard drive. Keep your NVMe configuration free for more immediate activity and you should be fine with it just as it is. I cannot stress the importance of a back up strongly enough however. Stuff happens even to good units like the one you currently use. :)

That is fantastic news! I suspected as much. You have a very nice laptop there. Take good care of it and it will take good care of your data. :)

Always a pleasure to help.
