Photoshop elements 14 and Lightroom won ́t start. I have 64bit computer with Windows 10. When launching Photoshop I get the following error code: Cannot find procedure start address for _crtCreateSymbolicLinkW" in DLL-file C:\\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP110.dll. (translated from Swedish "Det går inte att hitta procedurstartadressen...")I have valid licence keys (not creative cloud subscription). I think the problem started after I downloaded by mistake Creative cloud app from an update request from Adobe on my computer (which I later deleted). There are no creative cloud programs on my computer. I do have Adobe Acrobat Pro also, which works fine. How to solve this?

The first thread, repairing Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 solved the problem. Thank you!
