I installed DCS for the for the first time version  When I click on the DCS World icon on my desktop, I get the following error:


"DCS.exe - System Error"

" The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found.  Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."


The following activities have been completed

- Tried running the repair installation utility using "Check all files" and "Search for extra files after repair?" 

- Removed DCS world, rebooted PC and Reinstalled DCS

- Three Times

- Tried running DCS  as administrator

- blocked the antivirus from scanning the DCS program and saved game folders


Your advise / solution is appreciated.

In your C:/Program files/Eagle Dynamics/DCS World/distr/ folder should be two vc_redist.x64.exe.

These will install the Visual C libraries, required, though I am not sure, why it did not launch them during install in your case.

After the runtime libraries are installed it should work.
