api -ms-win-crt-runtime -l1-1-0.dll is missing

• Dec 6, 2018 - 16:47

Hi i have Musecore 2.3.2 works perfectly i installed 3.0.0 Beta earlier on Windows 7 64 bit

i got this message first,

Can't be start because api -ms-win-crt-runtime -l1-1-0.dll is missing

so i installed VisualSrudio 2015 then some dll files (i got from somewhere ) into both system32 & Syswow

then reinstlalled 3 beta .

The first error message from Musecore did not appear but the

second error was displayed api-ms-win-core-localization-l1-2-0.dll

Any ideas.
ips since then i have tried manaully adding these .dll into sysWOW64 and Musescore3 bin file
no go, as i said Musescore 2.3.2 perfect.

BTW i can use Musecore3 64b version on Puppy Linix appimage works pretty well, a tiny bit sluggsh,

Kind Regards

This guide unfortunately proposes to download or repair the C++ redistributtable, which is a huge but useless program for anyone who is not a programmer, or perform a massive Windows update with unpredictable consequences.
I've found a solution that works here:
I've installed this tiny program (~ 1 Mb) and MuseScore did unlock. However, the start center appears black. Not very important for a seasoned user, but it might discourage beginners.
I don't know if it is related to some non-fatal residual problem from an incomplete dll repair or what. I did not restarted the system. When I do so I'll update.
