Adobe Reader api-ms-win-crt-runtime.dll error


Adobe Reader displays the following error when started after installing MacroView DMF. 

After clicking OK Adobe Reader loads successfully but does not display the MacroView DMF Save to SharePoint and Open from SharePoint menu options.

The reason for this error is that MacroView DMF 8.4.1005 references a version of the Visual C++ Redistributable that does not include the required api-ms-win-crt-runtime.dll. The required dll is installed by default in Windows 10 but may not be present on versions of Windows between XP and 8.1.


Install the 2015 Visual C++ Redistributable


A permanent fix is scheduled for release in an update to MacroView DMF in December 2016
