After installing Lr (Desktop-Version) the programm does not start. Immedeately after double-clicking the Lr Button an error message appears on the screen:  Lightroom.exe system error VC Runtime 140_1.dll not found. Deleting the programm and re-installing it did not help.

Does anyone know what to to?
