[GoG.com Version 2.03] Runtime Error when starting PoE



After installing the latest Pillars of Eternity (PoE) verion 2.03 [Windows installer, NOT GoG Galaxy!], I have been getting the following error on launch.




Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library


Runtime Error!





This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an ususual way.

Please contact the application's support team for more information.







I have tried to resolve this issue and found the following:


By uninstalling Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistibutable, both (x64) and (x86), I can get PoE to work.

It starts and runs fine.


When reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistibutable (needed for other games) the Runtime Error will reoccur without fail.



I will also contact GoG.com support with this problem.


Attached are the 'output_log' and the 'DxDiag'.


Thank you for your help.

Had the same issue. Still unresolved. And if I use Galaxy to update it insists on re downloading the entire damn game. Gog patches are a mess. Makes me want to go back to steam.

"Those who look upon gods then say, without even knowing their names, 'He is Fire. She is Dance. He is Destruction. She is Love.' So, to reply to your statement, they do not call themselves gods. Everyone else does, though, everyone who beholds them."

"You choose the wrong adjective."

It actually worked.......



GoG, the fck are you doing?!?


I actually let out an audible "Aaaaaahohmygod"


This has figuratively kept me up for days....


I can't thank you enough.


I don't even remember how long i spent looking for a solution and yet not finding any on here....

Despite it clearly being somewhere...

I have to admit, I laughed out loud, MitoDrium. Welcome to the board and, now that your issue is resolved to your satisfaction, stick around and enjoy the board. Grab a burger and a beverage and enjoy the show.
