Lỗi the program cant start because api-ms-win-core-timezone năm 2024

In my case, the bug appeared only at Paint.NET startup, and only once Avast Antivirus was installed (see my system specs below).

  1. Cause:

Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 creates a dependency on the Universal CRT (C Runtime) when applications are built by using the Windows 10 SDK (Software Development Kit).

This prevents these applications from running correctly on previous Windows operating systems.

This bug affects Windows Vista SP2, 7 SP1, 8, 8.1, Server 2008, Server 2012...

  1. Solving it:

Apply the patch provided by Microsoft referred to as KB2999226 by downloading the right package according to your system:

This Package actually installes all additional required DLLs in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (here in case of Win 7 64bits)

On rare occasions, the program is not recognizing the api-ms-win-core-timezone-l1-1-0.dll, even though it is installed correctly. In these cases, the installation of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package could help. If you are still getting the Missing Error, try installing it here.
