    Did Win10 creators update just get rid of some important runtime DLLs?


    I have an old-ish application which worked fine on Win10 64-bit.
    That is, until I agreed to upgrade to the Creators edition two weeks ago.
    Now it simply won't work.
    Its complaining of a missing runtime DLL.

    Did Win10 creators ed., just get rid of a bunch of legacy DLLs, ... what could a solution be?

    Have you tried reinstalling that application ? Did you look for that DLL file and if it actually exists ?
    Many programs/applications/drivers use "Shared DLLs" shared with system DLLs and get replaced by some updates to ensure system stability but may interfere with older programs.

    They call it "Creator's Update", but I think it should be named "Destroyer's Downgrade".
    It's a mess for this OP, and for countless others. Madness.

    This is just another example of Microsoft's poor software QA and disregard for its customers.
