[CURRENT ISSUE] Error messages with MSVCP140.DLL/VCRUNTIME140.dll

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Somebody please help!!!Disappointed

 

I was prompted to update my Sims 4 digital deluxe on my PC (Windows 10) and after it updated Im getting the error I have attached. 

Im not very techy so if someone can give me a simplified step by step guide on what to do. I'm afraid if I uninstall sims 4 from origin i'll lose all my extra content, game packs and expansion packs.

I've repaired the game - still getting the error

I've also moved My sims 4 folder (In electronic arts folder) to my desktop as suggested on other posts but unsure what to do next. 

 

 

*currently re-installing game* will update if this works

@x_minatureI had this too.

You have to download Microsoft Visual C++. It should have been included in the update but this doesn't seem to work for all players.

I went to this page:

https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

and installed vc_redist.x64.exe. That fixed the problem for me and other players.

Error code 0xc000007b Unable to Start

★★★★ Novice

Every time I open the game it says “the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). I reinstalled the game and restarted my computer multiple times. It had also said I was missing files (VCRUNTIME140.dll and MSVCP140.dll). I installed these files and now have the error that the game cannot start. I also tried running as admin and nothing changed. Please help!

@alanmichael1 Hiya. I must be really unlucky, because I'm still getting the error message and no loading even with that installed. Frown
