Microsoft Office Suite DLL error

I keep getting the error below when I open any of my office suite apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) running on Windows Server 2012 R2:

Microsoft Office error api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0.dll

Full Error Message:" The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

I am running 32-bit version of office 2016.  I uninstall and install again but still receiving the same error.

How can i resolve this error?

Thanks

Looking for solution that doesn't require me to re-install the OS.

I just resolved the issue.  My system was receiving updates via SCCM.  There were a lot of missing required updates causing the issue.  I patched over 100 non-critical updates and it fixed the problem.

 updating C Runtime on the server did not work for me.

Thanks
