Unknown Error In Starting Apache

Postby thevip799 » 06. November 2016 08:44

When I tried to start apache first time it gave me an error saying,

The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll
is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I uninstalled XAMPP and reinstalled it but all in vain. It gives the same error.
Then I searched for the .dll it was asking for and found it on dll-files.com . I downloaded the .dll file and placed it here,


And after that when I tried to start Apache it againg gives error which was like,

The procedure entry point ucrtbase.terminate could not be located in the dynamic link library

I am totally confused now, so the last option for me is to come here on the forums, btw the error log:
