Psychonauts 2 wont start missing .dll file
Hello, I hope your doing well! I recently installed psychonauts 2 through steam on my computer. However when I do so it won't launch. I tried running as administrator but it gave me an error message of api-ms-win-core-version-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer.
I'm running the game on windows 7 which it says the game supports on steam. And with a pretty okay/good gaming laptop core i7 and nvida 980m gpu. I really just want to play the game I was so excited!!!!
If there's anyway someone could help it would be deeply appreciated! Please! Idk what to do
Thank you for your time!!
P.s here are all the things I've done so far.
- Restarted my comp
- Uninstalled and re installed the game through steam
- Verified the authentication of the games files
- Verified the .dll files in my system 32 with SFC to make sure I didn't have any corrupted or missing .dll files in my system 32.
I'm at a loss :/ below is a picture of the error message.

This exact problem is happening to me too :(
Same problem here. You are not alone. There's a sizeable thread on the steam forums about it, and sounds like they are working on a fix.

I had issues with Visual C++ 2015 needing to be repaired. Maybe try repairing ALL of the Visual C++ in the "Add or Remove Programs" menu in System Settings? Only idea I have. Fingers crossed it might work.
