module dll error


Senior Member
I am running windows 10 1709 Build 16299.19.
Running sfc /scannow gives an error that mfc90.dll cannot
be fixed. I have then run dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth.
After again running sfc /scannow I still get the same error, cannot be fixed.

What do I do to correct this?

Further investigation today:

I have 2 other PC's that are running back levels of Windows 10 and
they do have module mfc90.dll even installed. This makes this issue even
more complicated. Why is sfc trying to check on mfc90.dll in the first place?

Thank you Neemobeer for the quick reply. By reinstalling C++ runtime the problem was fixed.
Again, thank you.
