    I have a suggestion
    1. First of all you should make sure that the downloaded "msvcp140.dll" file is from a reliable source and is compatible with your operating system.
    2. Then Navigate to the System32 folder on your computer. The typical path is "C:\Windows\System32".
    3. Copy the downloaded "msvcp140.dll" file to the System32 folder.
    4. Restart computer and try to run the application that was previously giving this error.
    Note: You should proceed with caution and take full responsibility for any actions taken.

    Install or repair Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. This link points to the Microsoft download page.
