openmw missing runtimes

Post by name » 09 Oct 2019, 00:51

Whenever I try to open up openmw, the program says it cannot proceed because it is missing MSVCP140.dll and VCRUNTIME140.dll. I've installed exe installers for both runtimes, restarted my computer, and this problem still persists. Not really sure what to do now. Why doesn't openmw come with these runtimes preinstalled?

Which Windows version are you running? And which version of OpenMW are you trying to run? A nightly? A release?

The OpenMW nightlies and release builds should both have the necessary Visual C runtime packaged, but it is possible of course that it's failed to package them.
