Opened MikTeX Console to perform an update to the installed modules, and an error occurred during the installation of one or more modules. This prompted the following message to keep appearing:
The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140_CODECVT_IDS.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
MikTeX Console cannot be opened without the error reappearing. Running the default uninstaller for MikTeX triggers the same error message (pointing to a corrupted MikTeX installation).
Any suggestions to solve this problem?
