How To Easily Fix "The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer" Error On Windows 10

Multiple programs can share data allocated to a single file simultaneously. It is called "dynamic" because the data is used only when the program needs it. In this way, data is used only when necessary, rather than having it constantly available in memory. Unlike executable programs (with .exe file extension), .DLL files cannot be run directly. They must be called by other code that is already running. Despite this, .DLL files have the same format as .EXE files and some may even use the .EXE file extension.
