2017.3 Licensing - The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer.

Description

When trying to launch the 11.14.1.0 license utilities on a Windows machine, I get the following error message:

The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Solution

The 11.14.1.0 license utilities require that the machine have the 2015 Microsoft Redistributables installed before running. 

This is normally provided as part of the Vivado install, however if you are setting up a floating server outside of Vivado, you can obtain the redistributables from Microsoft:
