Error: code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found.

App does not run anymore.

Sorry for the error you are having trouble with right now and thank you for your post (and patience)

I am a volunteer (like all behind TheocBase) using some time trying do give support to the best of my ability

Looks like you have a problem with your Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables (standard Microsoft Software).


Please let me know if this solves your problem

I’ve had this error in some other applications I use, if your machine is very old and cannot install vc_redist, you can manually download the respective DLLs, 32 or 64 bits, and paste them into your Windows folder:

For 32-bit Windows: C:\Windows\System32

For Windows 64 bits:
The one above, and also: C:\Windows\SysWOW64

Remember: Be VERY careful when transferring DLL files and all Windows system files, there may be irreversible errors. See:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for this interesting reply. :smiley:

But, for all, does not download DLLs from the Internet, except from one of Microsoft’s official sites.
(because it’s a possible means of piracy if it’s not the official ones, and even for official ones, you can never be 100% sure)
