Most games required this component in order to play some of it features and you must install both 32bit and the 64bit version of it, even though you’re in Windows 10 64bit. This error also happens on 2013 and 2017 version of Visual C++.

The fix to this problem is very simple, and you don’t need to download this online – if you already have the PUBG installed in your computer. It just a matter of reinstalling this components. See our step by step guide below how to fix this issue.

    Your fix was just what I needed to be able to launch pubg; I repaired the redist 2013 and 2015 and the game worked fine. The only thing that is happening now is that each time I turn on the PC I have to repair the redist’s again before I can launch the game. Do you have any ideas?
