Although this solution is suitable for Windows 10, it also applies to any other version of the system up to Windows 7.

The error itself says the following: Could not start the program because MSVCP100.dll (or MSVCP140.dll) was not found. This problem can be solved by reinstalling the program.

Very often these types of errors occur even when the program has not been installed.

To fix the msvcp140 system error you need to download the Visis  C ++ Redistributable package for Visual Studio 2015 from the official Microsoft page.

Choose the language of your system, even if it is only for the installer since they are libraries. Remember- if you have a 64-bit system, download vc_redist.x64.exe and if it is 32 bit vc_redist.x86.exe

After downloading the correct version, simply follow it and follow the steps. When you are finished, you do not need to reboot your PC, even if it is recommended in case there are pending installations.

To fix the msvcp100 bug you will need to download Security Update for Microsoft Visual C ++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package. You can download it directly from the official Microsoft page.

As before, choose the version for your architecture between a 32 or 64-bit system. Follow the installation steps, simply accept the terms and conditions and it will work as soon as the installation is complete.
