My photoshop at work won't start up anymore.

It says there is a file missing: api-ms-win-libraryloader-l1-2-0.dll.

 

Anybody knows how to fix this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Not sure what's causing it but seems to be related to ACR version 13.1 on Windows 7 with Photoshop version 21.2.4, no issues on Windows 10 with Photoshop version 22.1

This happened to me after I updated Camera RAW in the Creative Cloud App, I have Windows 7. I followed Ged's suggestion and installed an older version of Camera RAW, 12.4, and I was able to use Photoshop again.

Thank you for the solution.

It worked perfectly. Guess Adobe is gradually nudging everyone into Windows 10.

That seems to be a Windows DLL.  However, I do not see it in Windows 10 and Photoshop works fine what version of windows are you using Photoshop 22  requires Windows 10.
