Missing msvcp110.dll on Windows 10

Hi there,

Ever since I installed Windows 10, I cannot open Adobe suite programs like Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. I get an error saying that msvcp110.dll is missing from my computer. I checked the other questions that were asked on different versions of Windows, and people suggested to download Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package, but I do not know which version of it is for Windows 10. Would the 2015 version solve my issue? Or it isn't even related?

Edit: As soon as I posted this questions, I tried to open Revit 2015(Autodesk software), and this time msvcr110.dll is missing. So I have two things missing now;

- msvcp110.dll

- msvcr110.dll
