Having to reinstall lightroom 6 3 times. Every time I install the latest update 20 15.8/6.8. Lightroom will not start and gives the following error message. lightroom.exe - System Error. This program can't start because API-MS-win-CRT-runtime-I1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. Needless to say. all previous updates are lost when reinstalling.

Sound like a problem with your Windows Update not working correctly. I put the DLL you listed in a google search box and found this at Microsoft. Try updating the C runtime from that update. Due to the nature of malware, I would recommend that you stick to Microsoft for updates like this.
