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

Premise

api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing

I installed MongoDB on one of the Windows prod server. The installation was successful. However, when I tried to start the application, I got the following error:

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

Solution

The error was thrown because the MongoDB application couldn’t find, Visual C++ Redistributable package. It gets installed automatically with Visual Studio which is why, I never faced this issue on my dev environment.

So, on your prod servers, just manually download/install the Visual C++ Redistributable package, from this link:

Visual C++ Redistributable

After the installation, MongoDB was successfully up and running.
