link.exe error on Windows 8

Post by breeze4me »

On Windows 8, when I compile the code, which is only one line, I get the following error and it doesn't run.

Code: Select all

a + 1
---------------------------
link.exe - 시스템 오류
---------------------------
컴퓨터에 api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll이(가) 없어 프로그램을 시작할 수 없습니다. 프로그램을 다시 설치하여 이 문제를 해결하십시오.
Translation:
link.exe - System Error
---------------------------
The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Please install the program again to fix this problem.

The updates are all up to date.
None of the update files in the link were installed on Windows 8. The file for Windows 8.1 was also not installed.
Unfortunately, it looks like Windows 8 is not supported.
This update applies to the following operating systems:

Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows 8.1
Windows RT 8.1
Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
