When I click on the Apache start button, this is the pop up I get.

The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer,

Why is this error popping up, it didnt last time I installed xampp. The error is saying Im missing the dll. Where do I get it from or does it install as one of the windows updates, and if so what would it be called
