Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime



  • Whenever I try to open the game, it tells me that I must install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime components (UE4 Prereqs). So I installed them, and the game worked.
    The next time I opened the game, it asked me again, so I said Yes. Then it says I already have it, so my options are to Uninstall or Cancel. When I uninstall, it starts the game…? When I cancel, the game doesn’t open.
    It seems like I’m in an endless loop of installing/uninstalling these components for some reason, in order to get the game running. Is anyone else having this issue?



  • What Windows version and update are you on?



  • I’m running Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600).
    Is this what you need? Let me know if you need something more.
