I am trying to open nTop and there's an error with VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL


  • The error occurs when starting nTop after updating to release 2.22
  • Error message: "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

Applies to:

  • nTop 2.22.7
  • Windows 10
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019


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


Get the latest versions of Microsoft Visual C++.

  1. Visit the Microsoft support site.
  2. Browse the Visual Studio 2015, 2017, and 2019 sections.
  3. Download x64: vc_redist.x64.exe
  4.  Double-click to run the program and install the files.
