Sims 4 says invalid license reason code = Missing DLL msvcp120.dll error 0xc1

★★★★ Novice

I opened sims 4 after updating it and it said Invalid license. Reason code = Missing DLL [MSVCP120.dll] Error: 0xC1.

Any help?

Also, I've seen other posts but their answers didn't work for me so I am making this.

I tried downloading vcredst_x64 and vcredist_x86 from Microsoft.

I do have mods but I already removed them before updating and idk what it means

Thanks

Please run the two setup files here:

Notice that your path will likely be C:\program files(x86) and so on.

Thanks for your answer but it still doesn't work after I ran the vcredist_x64 and 86.

Sorry, but I forgot to add in the description of the question that I have already repaired the game.

Please uninstall Origin. Then download the latest version here: https://www.origin.com/dnk/en-us/store/download
After installation login to the account you have The Sims 4 on. Rightclick the game in your game library and select Repair.

Hi I have this problem also, EA games and Microsoft support have tried various things, including your advice.  Sims 3 works fine.  Please help.
