I just found the mirror site and 18.6 installed and works perfectly.
older releases can be retrieved from our mirrors:

there's a known issue with 18.7 that might explain the issue you are having:
https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=354663

the trick would be to install 18.6 first, then install 18.7 on top of it.
I like to say thank you all for answering the query 18.7 question?

I should of asked much sooner and saved myself hours of trying on my.

Next time I'll ask?


Thank you all

how to join the beta channel for 18.7
For those of you on Android, following successfull beta channel trails a patched version of Leia 18.7 release is currently being rolled out on Play Store  - code versions 18.07.200 (ARM) and 18.07.201 (ARM64).

Sorry for any inconvenience caused for those that experienced the jittering issue. Android devices are very diverse in both hardware and software, thus effectively impossible for the team to test on even a small subset of combinations. For the continued development of Kodi in v19 and beyond we need the community to contribute with testing the nightlies and giving clear feedback on issues if they can.
Will the Windows 18.7 installer be fixed to include the Visual C++ Redistributable at some point? There have been a few posts in the Windows section about 18.7 not loading due to those missing.

Hello,
It's still version 18.6 on the (french) Playstore. Is this normal ?

Thanks for this hard work on android Smile
Question is Kodi going to be able to support pip on iOS 14??
I cannot find another place or method to post.
I have read all the suggested material, and it does not tell me how/where to post.
I have tried 4 times to install 18.7 Leia.
Same error each time:
Click run Kodi.
Cannot run due to missing msvcp140.dll
Hit CR again and get cannot run due to missing vcruntime140.dll

Suggestion is to install again, but that does not change anything.

I ran version 16 something for years W7 64  Ultimate - w no problem.

Same Home built AMD  8530? as above.
Just switched from 7 to W10 Pro-64 10.0.18363 build 18363
24 GB RAM

Kodi 18.7 is missing the Visual C++ redistributable. You can either download https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x86.exe and https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x64.exe to install it or download and install Kodi 18.6 then install 18.7.

Choose your requirement (32 or 64 bit) then all the exe's are available going back a fair way.

It is used to gather additional information on crashes in Kodi. As you are using a previous version of Kodi it is optional and not needed.
