Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing error?

So, I am assuming that this is a Visual Studio Community issue since it's calling for VCRUNTIME. Also just recently I download the 2015 version which doesn't work with UE4? It has to be 2013?...Anyways I got rid of 2015, installed 2013 and it worked fine, but now I need to work in another project and get this error:

 System Error
 
 The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

So I'd really rather not uninstall VS, any way around this?

I should also note the engine 4.8.3 and VS 2013 work fine together, this project I'm trying to load is 4.10.1 but no VS is used or has been used on it. So I don't know why its trying to find that dynamic library.

Product Version: UE 4.10

4.10 requires newest C++ runtime from VS2015, so you need to update:

download visual c++ redistributable and install it. if you already have it installed on your pc, download and repair it. you can use windows "control panel" and "programs and features" then find visual c++ redistributable the same version as your visual studio and right click and hit repair

my answer was for vcruntime.....dll , in general. sometimes it is installed but needs to be repaired as the case I came across. i had this problem on visual studio 2015 and UE 4.10, i had Visual c++ redistributable 2015 installed but it would give me that error then i only download and repaired it.

I get the same error: System Error The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I tried everything mentioned above:

  1. Downloaded and installed/repaired Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2008/2010/2012/2015 x64 and x86.

  2. Copied the VCRUNTIME140D.DLL (32bit and 64bit) into system32 and

  3. Reinstalled Unreal Engine and Launcher

I got rid of the problem through an unusual way. Reinstalling Visual Studio. It installed the same Redistributables than before, but now it is working for some reason.
