*** Updated info 7/9/2019
After updating Project Pro – customers with the fixed versions should be on builds at or greater than 16.0.11727.20244
For the background to the issue read on ***
There is an issue with a recent update (June 2019) of the Project Professional click to run client for those in the targeted channels (Project Online Desktop client) that gives an error for Windows 7 users when connecting to Project Web App, either by opening the application and trying to connect to PWA, or if taking an action that would start Project, such as opening a plan from the Project Center into Project:
“The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-version-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”
This affects customers on targeted releases and only on Windows 7 - and can be overcome by reverting to the standard release for now, and if you understand that then go for it - if not then read on for other options...
We have a couple of workarounds for this issue and I'd suggest number 2 might be the best one to choose, as it keeps you at the same release level just in case you are benefiting from a recent fix for any of the Office products:
Once we release the fix (hopefully we will make the July updates) then no action is needed - the right new DLL will be installed. If you take option 1 above then after the July updates you could change back to targeted release.
We have issued a Service Health Dashboard announcement, but only to customers who have opened cases - SP183696.
And again, this only affects Windows 7, and as a reminder, support for Windows 7 ends on January 14th 2020.
