How To Fix "The program can’t start because MSVCR120.dll is missing from your computer" Error In Windows 10

A DLL file (Dynamic Link Library) is a type of file that contains instructions for other programs about how to perform certain operations. 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 the .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 even use the .EXE file extension.
