Every time I launch battlefield V now since the newest update I keep getting this error message
"The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this."
All the steps I've tried doing are I've tried reinstalling the whole game, repairing and updating. I've also tried reinstalling/repairing microsoft visual studio 2015 and the latest version. Multiple computer restarts. I also updated my nvidia drivers from 418.81 to 418.91 which is the latest update from nvidia.(It wasn't happening on 418.81 until battlefield V updated) I already have Universal C Runtime in WIndows update (KB2999226) installed in my windows updates.


My specs

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

CPU: intel i7 8700k

GPU: RTX 2060 (EVGA)

MB: Asus PRIME Z370-A

RAM: 16 GB ddr4



The game was launching just fine before this update and I wasn't getting any error messages. This error message pops up every time I launch the game now and I can just close it out and the game will still run and I can play it with no issues to my notice which is the weird thing. I was searching for others with similar issues and found out that the error I'm getting is only a file related to windows 8 users. I would still like to get this troubleshooted in-case problems in the future start happening. Will provide any other information if necessary
