Game Crashes on Startup (FIXED)

Posted on Friday, September 11, 2015

Game crashes to desktop after startup. I tried removing mods and reinstalling the game, to no avail. 


The debug.err comes up with the following issue:


Debug Message:  Failed to load C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Galactic Civilizations III\DXAtlasDLL.dll (error code: 193 (0xC1))
Debug Message:  Finished running DXAtlasDLL Generator Program (C:\Users\cchayes\Documents\My Games\GalCiv3\Screens\Atlas)
Debug Message:  WARNING: GenerateDXAtlasFiles FAILED


Any thoughts?


EDIT: Fixed this by downloading the redist file in the support link and choosing the repair option.
