Re-installing Real Player

I can re-install Real Player but can not copy web videos.  I get a message "The program can't start because:   cpprest140_2_8.dll is missing from your computer. Try re-installing the program to fix this problem.   I have tried this many times and it does not correct the situation.  I have completely emptied my "temp" files and that did not help either.

How do I get this fixed? 


Thank you.
