When you try to run the game pops up a window that tells you that the computer is missing msvcp140.dll? So this library has been moved, corrupted or deleted by some program or by the user. One of the most popular mistakes in games Witcher 3, Bioshock Infinite and Grim Dawn are errors with msvcp140.dll. This file is part of Microsoft Visual C++. Usually, if the program uses its library, then the package is installed along with it. But not always. If the game was downloaded from torrents, it may install modified versions of the libraries, or not install it at all. In this case, the error msvcp140.dll will appear that will advise you to reinstall the game. What to do if reinstalling did not help? You need to install the library by yourself.
