api-ms-win-core-winrt-string-l1-1-0.dll is missing

Im using widows 7 on my working PC and i know i should update (i have win10 on my common pc) but i still need to finish some important art projects and updating my system now would cause me a lot of compatibility trouble with some wierd and old programs i use so im stuck with win7 until im done with theses projects.

However, last night i had an update (i thought there was no more updates wor win7 Oo') and since then, my mouse software wont work anymore ! the software is called "Steelseries Engine" i worked until late and the software was working, but today, it wont start.

i tried to restart, update, and reinstalling but the problem seems to come from some missing dll.

when i go into the install folder and launch it from there, it gives me the following error :

the program cant start because "api-ms-win-core-winrt-string-l1-1-0.dll" is missing.

Anyone could tell me how to repair that ? is it something related to visual c++ or something ?

I really need help, because i have to finish my project fast and witout my mouse setup/macros its going to take ages. art Thanks a lot.
