Visual C++ Runtime dependencies

Like many applications that run on the Windows platform our games have certain minumum requirements. As well as minimum hardware requirements there are also some minimum software requirements. Windows is a complex piece of software that is full of optional extras.

To function correctly our games depend on two packages supplied by Microsoft. These common dependencies, which are supplied directly by Microsoft, are often found installed on machines, but in some cases they need to be manually installed.

Here is a quick guide on how to check that your windows machine is correctly setup to enjoy our games.

First select the Action Center


Then select the All Settings Option


Then choose the Apps Option


And finally check the installed visual c++ runtimes


If you need to install the Microsoft visual C++ runtimes they can be found on the official Microsoft site. You will need both the 2012 and the combined 2015-2019 runtimes, the (x86) versions.

Click on the links to download the installers, then run them to install the runtimes on your machine. They will be downloaded to your downloads folder by default. If you are unsure how to run the installers please consult the official Microsoft help pages.
