In Windows 7, the best way to access the Windows Update Center is through the Control Panel. Here, the Windows Update Center is included as an applet on the control panel, which includes configuration settings, update history, and more. Just open the Control Panel, and then click on the Windows Update Center.
Click Check for Updates to check for new, removed updates. Installation sometimes happens automatically or with the "Install Updates" button, depending on which version of Windows you are using and how Windows Update is configured.
Another way to fix the error
If you have installed all the above downloads but the Unable to load R3 module error still persists, you can resolve it by changing the Andy simulator protocol. To do this, right-click on the emulator icon in the taskbar at the bottom right and select Set Andy Protocol from the options that appear. You will see a warning that it is not recommended to change this setting because all progress in apps (including games) will be lost.
This warning does not scare us since we have not worked with the emulator yet, so we confidently click on the confirmation. By default, the protocol is set to pipe. Change it to tcp: and click OK. In the warning window that appears, click on the confirmation button.
