  1. Did I help you? Consider a one time contribution to support new daily content on this channel.

  2. the GTA 5 on epic games now on my pc has got errors like this one , and other things that u knew . Thx for help !!

  3. what if the same problem still pop up , I have installed directx end and have finished installing the net framework, but the same problem still comes out, can someone help me with this problem

  4. SOLUTION- If you're getting this error code or the error message saying "missing msvcp140.dll", "missing vcruntime140.dll" here is the solution: Make sure you have all microsoft visual C++ packages installed. Make sure DirectX is installed. I had done these steps, but it was still getting the error. This is what fixed it. 64 bit systems- search these three dll files (xinput1_3.dll, msvcp140.dll, vcruntime140.dll) download the latest 64 bit version AND the 32 bit version for each of these three files. You'll need both if you have a 64 bit system. After you do this, you should have 6 files. Keep the 64 bit files separate from the 32. If you mix them up, the issue will persist. Finally, navigate to your SysWOW64 folder and your System32 folder. The path will be C:WindowsSystem32 or SysWOW64. Put all of the 64 bit dll files in the System32 folder. Then put all the 32 bit dll files in the SysWOW64 folder. If you have a 32 bit system you just need to download the 32 bit files and put them in SysWOW64. This should resolve the issue. Let me know if the issue persists or if you need to see a walk through and i'll post a video on my channel about it. Also, let me know if you have any other technical issues that you need help with and I can make a video.
