Last night I downloaded and installed Solidworks 2018-2019 onto my laptop. However, when I attempted to open the program, I received an error that it could not find the filed VCRUNTIME140.dll. In order to fix this, I was advised to copy and paste the .dll file into the Windows and Windows>System32 folders on my computer. After doing this, I tried opening Solidworks and I received an error stating that the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Has anyone seen this error before? Does anyone know how to fix it?
