Phoenix Point doesn't start after the latest patch

Hi guys,

For some reason, after the latest patch installation, the game doesn’t want to start saying that I need Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable. I have this installed, but game still shows me this error.

What I’ve already done trying to fix this:

  • re-installed the game (I have it within Epic games launcher)
  • re-installed MS Visual C++ 2015
  • removed all other MS Visual C++ versions (above 2015)

Can someone help me to run the game?


Could you show me how many Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable do you have on your PC? This is how it looks on my PC:

There are two types of Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable on of them is x64 and the other one is x84. You need to have both of them.

You can download both versions of 2015 here: Download Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 from Official Microsoft Download Center

Or you can download 2015-2019 from here: and here


Have fixed this a minute ago by installing 2015-2019 version of the MS Visual C++. Guess the error message is a bit misleading.
Thanks Valygar for your comment!
