i was hoping there would be a list or archive that would have them,
I can provide the files in 4 or 5 hours.
This is definitely not the approved method. Your problem is probably caused by some program messing when these files when it shouldn't.

I just downloaded the 18.161 release version from freecad.org and got this error at runtime:
api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l 1-1-0.dll

I searched and found this post. I presume I'm headed down the same road with my win7 machine.
I did notice this, an error from 7-zip, see pic.

The install works perfect on my win10 machine.
