Can't Launch The Sims 4

Post by iPained on Sun 26 Mar 2017, 13:59

So I've Downloaded The Sims 4 And All The Expansion Pack Here, I Followed Every Instructions. But When Launching The Sims 4 It Keeps Saying That " The Program Can't Start Because MSVCP120.dll Is Missing From Your Computer. Try Reinstalling The Program To Fix This Problem.". Do I Really Have To Reinstall Everything That I Downloaded Or There's Another Solution For This Problem? PLEASE HELP!

Most probably you haven't installed the Redist files in the base game.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @iPained,

Sometimes you also have to install certain 'older' runtimes. See the post here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t20398-the-procedure-entry-point-____-could-not-be-located-msvcp120-dll-is-missing

In general, please also make sure that you actually have all available Windows updates downloaded and installed. Good luck!

Just download the .dll

If your program is missing a .dll file, it usually means there was an installation issue, reinstalling could fix it, but more simply you can just google the .dll name, and download it in minutes, put it in the folder with the application and vioila! problem solved.

I most strongly advice NOT TO DO THAT !
Fat chance you download a wrong version
Just look howmany msvcp120.dll files there are on my computer with all various sizes.
