    When installing REW on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 8.1 you may encounter a somewhat cryptic error message: "The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-timezone-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.". This is caused by the Java runtime using components from the Windows Universal C Runtime which are not present on older Windows installations. To fix it see this Microsoft knowledge base article, KB2999226.
