I am trying to open nTop and there's an error with VCOMP140.DLL


While trying to start nTop after installation, I saw the error message: "The code execution cannot proceed because VDCOMP140.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

Applies to:

  • nTop
  • Windows 10


This Windows error message generally occurs due to missing or corrupt Visual C++ redistributable files.
