'api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0.dll' is missing from your computer

Dear Colleagues, 

I have tried to create a new project in SDL Studio 2015 (and later in Studio 2014) but as soon as I get to entering/browsing for the location of the project files, I get the following error message:

'The program can’t start because api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this program.'

Reinstalling the programs and installing updates do not help. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to resolve this problem? 

Thank you in advance for your tips, with kind regards,
