I have until tomorrow to download Windows 10. I am still with Windows 7

 

I have been receiving the error code: 0x8007007e which means that a file is missing.

 

api-ms-win-core-libraryloader-11-1-1.dll

 

Googling this problem has led me to a solution and I have managed to follow the instruction until the very last one. After accessing

 

wimgapi.dll.mui           I COPY, but cannot find REPLACE.

 

It seems that if I replace this file my problem is solved.

 

Anyone able to help me. please?

 

My THANKS in advance

This 0x8007007e issue occurs due to missing or corrupted Windows Update components.

 

Please download and run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.  Clicking on this link will immediately start the download.

This is a known problem with some 7 to 10 upgrades along with errors like this:

 

[attachment=200949:Untitled.jpg]

 

The short version of the solution seems to be:

 

Replace  C:\Windows10Upgrade\wimgapi.dll with the one from C:\Windows\System32\wimgapi.dll

 

or

 

Copy C:\Windows\System32\wimgapi.dll and Paste it into C:\Windows10Upgrade replacing any existing file.

 

 

There is no Replace - use Paste instead and respond in the affirmative if asked to overwrite an existing file.

 

Here is one link with a solution:

 

https://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/fix-the-api-ms-win-core-libraryloader-l1-1-1-dll-is-missing-error-windows-10-upgrade/

 

Here is a recent topic in the Microsoft TechNet Windows 10 community that starts with many impossible to work ideas and false starts but eventually an idea is posted where several folks report success following that advice (I cannot validate, test or verify) so I suggest reading through the replies focusing on the replies where this idea worked:

 

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/8ab132c5-fdf5-409d-92c8-a96ebfc3eeaa/error-while-upgrading-to-windows-10?forum=win10itprosetup

 

On I side note I wonder:

 

If you are upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10 and have run into a snag (which seems to have a workaround) what other snags are you going to run into later?

 

If the upgraded system malfunctions or has issues I would always be wondering if the problems had something to do with the upgrade process that did not go well.

 

If it was me and if I wanted a Windows 10 system I would create some Windows 10 installation media and perform a clean/fresh install from scratch instead of doing an upgrade.  If you are having a problem like this right out of the chute what other problem lie ahead?

 

If you have an issue in the future that requires Windows 10 installation media to fix it what are you going to do (or do you have some Windows 10 installation media)?

on the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group on Groups.io if you want the "under the hood" explanation regarding this issue.  Joseph Lee does an excellent job of this.
