    Game not starting

    So as the title says,the game isn't starting,only the launcher.
    There are 2 things that happen:
    1.If i start the game via steam,the launcher starts,the play button is red but when i hit play nothing happens.
    2.If i start game without steam only from the launcher in the game dir,the launcher starts,the play button is red but when i git play i get this error:The procedure entry point ucrtbase.terminate could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-runtime-|1-1-0.dll
    Any1 has any ideea how i can fix this?

    When i run Nosgoth in Admin mode launcher run normally, then i click Play button and its showing me this error

    i google it, and it says that i must install the vcredist from game directory, i am trying to but i got this error

    in the error log i see this

    I will add that after update the game, these 4 things in the game folder including VCRedist were installed by steam

    Hello there,

    The version of the game that you download via Steam needs to be booted using Steam itself. Launcher the game directly via executables can lead to odd issues such as the one that you're seeing above.

    Crashes when trying to close the game. Taskmanager ftw. Nice patch

    Yes of course
    My problem was that I could not install Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable, during the installation jumped an error 0x80240017, which was needed to fix the problem.
    So to remove this problem had to install UDPATE to my Windows that is Windows 8.1, which I downloaded from here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2919355, and then installed it. After that installation could have easily install vc_redist what fix problem with the launcher.
