Amazon has been expanding its reach far and beyond. It’s the newest endeavour is to conquer the gaming world. And it’s doing a fine job with the latest release Crucible from Amazon Games Studio. The free person vs person vs environment (PvPvE) game released on Steam a few days back and gamers are already excited about the game. This has put a lot of strain on the servers which are causing a range of issues for players. Although a non-server related error, two errors common with the game is Crucible MSVCP140.dll Missing and Crucible VCRUNTIME140.dll Not Found.
The VCRUNTIME140.dll Not Found is a common error that has plagued players in previous titles. One such title was the recent DOOM Eternal.
Before we share the fix for these error, let’s have a look at the two .dll files, so you can avoid these errors in the future with other games.
What Causes the MSVCP140.dll and VCRUNTIME140.dll errors?
MSVCP140.dll is an essential component of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages 2015 and is crucial for games developed with Visual C++. If the file becomes corrupted or goes missing it can cause the game to collapse and result in the missing or corrupted .dll message.
The Vulkan-1.dll is related to the Vulkan Graphics API used by the game Crucible. The error Crucible Vulkan-1.dll missing can be caused due to a bunch of reasons such as missing or deleted vulkan-1.dll, faulty application, damage to the registry, and presence of a malicious software on the PC that targets the particular .dll file The VCRUNTIME140.dll is also one of several runtime libraries of Visual C++ version 2015, 2017, and 2019. These libraries play a critical role in running the game and software developed using the Visual Studio. If you encounter the VCRUNTIME140.dll Not Found, it generally means the .dll file has gone missing for some reason and reinstalling the Visual C++, the game, or installing the .dll file can fix the problem.
How to Fix Crucible MSVCP140.dll Missing and VCRUNTIME140.dll Not Found?
You can fix the Crucible MSVCP140.dll missing or VCRUNTIME140.dll not found problem by updating your GPU and if the problem persists, download the Vulkan-1.dll and install it separately. A simple Google search will present you a bunch of website to download the file.
However, download the .dll file from a third-party website can be dangerous. Hence, you should reinstall the Microsoft Visual C+++ Redistributables for both x86 and x64 versions. This will effectively fix the error.
