Known Issue: On Windows 8.1 some SDK tools fail to run and report run and report: “This program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. (Windows 10 Insider Preview SDK, March 2016 release) RRS feed

  • Question

  • When installing the Windows SDK on a platform other than Windows 10, some tools fail to run and report the error “This program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”  In addition, the Windows.WinMD file that should be created in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\UnionMetadata folder is missing.

     This occurs because the version of Windows you are installing on is not up to date with the latest Windows Update packages.
