Scenario 2: Origin Error msvcp140.dll Not Found
When I tried to open origin is gave me the ‘msvcp140.dll is not found’ error, I uninstalled origin. I’ve already tried downloading the x64 and x84 and I’ve restarted my computer more times than I can count and I downloaded msvcp140.dll and put it in my system32 file since I have 64bit, I’ve done an sfc /scannow in Command Prompt (Admin) but nothing works so far. I have an HP computer and I played the sims 4 just last night; please let me know if you have any other ways to fix it.
