    System32 subfolder is a common location for DLLs, however when developers include these files in program builds, vcruntime140.dll copy may be placed in their root folder.

    In every new version Visual C ++ improves DLL files, that’s why we may identify a particular version of the Redistributable Package for each file. In our case, 140 in the name means it is a part of the 2015 version library. Here are a few hints:

    On two most popular OS versions, Windows 7 and 10, the size of the file is 86 Kb and 102 Kb, respectively. It is recommended to get the latest versions of Visual C ++ 2015. Also, digital signature is the fastest way to verify file authenticity. With vcruntime140.dll this means that the vendor should be Microsoft Corporation. In any other cases, one should not install such files and get it from a trusted source.

    We’ve checked the history of virus attacks for VCRuntime140 in Bitdefender and Comodo databases of malware. We didn’t find any references to malware which uses vcruntime140.dll as a source for virus attacks. By this, we assume there is no technology utilizing DLL architecture with illegal intent.

    We’ve also checked copies of the file (Win 7 and Win 10) with VirusTotal service. It provides cloud-based file scanning running through 71 antiviruses to detect malicious files and false positives. All antiviruses have identified the file as safe. In turn, this means if your antivirus detects a threat related to VCRuntime, you are definitely dealing with a virus threat. If possible, send it for analysis to the antivirus lab. In addition, we recommend using anti-malware apps, such as Malware Fighter.
