MSVCP140.dll Missing

okay so im trying to install origin and the sims4 for my mom on this Dell inspiron 15 that shes had for years. i completely factory reset it and now that ive tried to install it gives me this message "MSVCP140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling to fix the problem."
ive tried reinstalling, then going in as an admin and enabling it and nothing.
ive tried uninstalling the entire graphics pack and redoing it and nothing.
ive even tried scaning as an admin.
im like a 2/10 when it comes to knowing what im doing with computers, so this is all from research on different forums and i still cant get anything to work. this is day 5 and i leave for college next week and i was hoping to have this done by then. can someone please help me.

(its a 64 bit and it runs on windows 8.1)

You'll need the C++ runtime installed.

this is also something i have tried, and its just not registering.
after going into my control panel i saw that i have 10 different C++ runtime programs installed but again i have very little experience with computers so i didnt know if uninstaling them all and starting fresh would screw it up or not.
ive tried about everything on this page

Did you install both the x86 and x64 versions of the 2015, 2017 and 2019 redistributable? These are the ones that contains msvcp140.dll.
