I installed the base game through Galaxy and now that I try to launch the game from Galaxy or desktop shortcut, the game simply won't start. After clicking, the play button on Galaxy turns grey for couple of seconds, meaning it registers the attempt to launch, but after the short period it turns back to the default purple.

I tried verify / repair, it downloaded >100MB patch, still won't work. I also tried running both XCOM 2 and Galaxy client as an administrator since in the past similar problem occured with another game and that solved it. Tried compatibility mode for Windows 7, too.

Win 10

RX 570

Had this problem aswell. Seems like they forgot to include the redistributable in the download.

A sloppy mistake...

Perhaps it was a condition of the sale, a quid pro quo to Microsoft to demonstrate good faith and derive goodwill for future dialogue?

For posterity, the error reads:


===============
XCom2.EXE —— System Error
The code execution cannot proceed because VCOMP120.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix the problem.
