Fix for Wireshark error “wireshark api-ms-win-crt-runtime”

Some of my systems have been giving the error “The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.” after updating Wireshark.. took me a while to identify why.

Simple once you find the fix!

You need the “Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows”:

Thanks to Adobe for documenting this simply.

The above referenced Microsoft Update file also fixes a problem where Outlook may report “Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client.” if you have Office 2016.
