When attempting to start the game player receives the error message: "Launcher.exe – Application Error The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click OK to terminate."
The problem is related to components of Microsoft Visual C++ packets being broken or missing entirely. In such cases it is recommended that you uninstall all the versions of the packet (Visual C++ 2005, Visual C++ 2008, Visual C++ 2010) and then reinstall them. The files needed for the installation of these products can be downloaded from the websites listed below. When running a 32-bit version of Windows please be sure to install only 32-bit versions of the programs below.
Both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of the programs below will work on 64-bit versions of Windows.
Uninstall all of the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributables that you have installed.
Once it's done install the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages from the link below starting from the oldest ones (skip the "arm" files). Launch all the executables as Administrator.
