Its a bug in electron 1.1.0

Hope they will resolve it asap.


  1. Go to this link Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015

  2. Download it and install it (x86/x64) accordingly

  3. Go to c:\windows\system32

  4. Find VCRUNTIME140.dll MSVCP140.dll and paste in the root of your distribution app

Now your applicaiton will run.
