Apologies (if needed) for resurrecting an old thread, but this is my very problem. I know, using Win8.1 in 2018?! Its what was on the laptop when I inherited it, what can I say?
Attempted install (and run following failed install) produces two error messages, both for missing files. “api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll” and the Qt5~ mentioned in other threads. There was an error that popped up once regarding missing MSVCP140.dll, but I can’t seem to get it to recur. How would I diagnose/find what Qt I have and replace it with the correct version? I’ve hunted down stray MSVCP’s before, that I can do., but what about that api?
