Windows 8.1 wont open Transmission missing .dll

Postby huehueteot@aol.com » Sun May 21, 2017 3:23 am

Downloaded Transmission 2.92.x64.msi on an ASUS laptop running Win-8.1. Transmission wont start error msg says api-ms-win-crt-string-11-1-0.dll is missing. How do I fix this?

This is "fixed" in nightly builds by aborting the installation and showing the error message "The Universal C Runtime is not installed. Please run Windows Update and install all required Windows updates. You can download the UCRT separately from here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2999226"

FYI there's also a newer version of the same update package at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3118401
