  1. Thanks for the reply, UCyborg If it was supposed to install with Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable, then that's got me a little concerned. If it can't function without it, then it makes me wonder if that Visual C++ Redist, is actually functioning as it should. I had two and a half hours of problem-free game play last night, but when I went to play today, I had major sound issues...it sounded like static. No other game is having this issue, and anything else like YouTube videos,movies, etc is having any problem..just this game. No game settings or computer settings were changed, so I h
  2. Hi guys I finally got around to installing the Universal C Runtime update, as MrMateczko had suggested, then reinstalled the game. Before starting it up, I checked it in DependencyWalker just for the heck of it, and it was no longer trying to access the dlls in the Skype folder. I then tried to fire up the game and....success! I haven't tried actually playing as of yet, so who knows if/when I'll experience the in-game issues countless others have been having - but that's something different entirely. I just wanted to come back here to let you guys know that the game is able to start
  3. Thanks Tripredacus I read the fix for the error in running Dependencies. via your link. According to the post, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 is required in order to run the program, which I already have installed. So who knows why it isn't working for me. Also, thanks so much for letting me know I shouldn't worry too much anymore about any updates forcing me to upgrade to Win10. I know eventually I'll have to, but not just yet lol! :p I guess I'll just have to read through to see which ones ARE telemetry updates. Anyway, I'll try installing the Universal C Runtime , an
  4. Hi MrMateczko I attached a screenshot of the error I get while trying to run Dependencies. In regards to the Universal C Runtime update, I found it here on the forums But now I see that the topic hasn't been updated in over a year, so I have no idea how reliable this information is anymore, or if I need to worry about installing any of the updates listed. But I will see if installing that update helps. Thank you
  5. I don't know of any specific program to check the manifest version of the exe, and even if I did, I doubt I'd be able to understand how to use it, or interpret the result. The only thing I did manage to do was use Notepad. I didn't try on the game's exe, since I uninstalled the game ( for now), but I did test it on the two other Tomb Raider games I have, as well as a few other games. I know Notepad can't read a lot of what the file includes, but the only instance of a manifest version was "manifestVersion="1.0", which doesn't tell me anything I want to know. I did try to use the more upda
  6. Thanks Mcinwwl and jaclaz I opted for the Command prompt method. This is what came up. I hope you guys can make sense of it, because I can't lol!

  7. @jaclaz Thanks so much I'm hoping I'll be able to find a solution without having to manually install each individually, so any future programs that may need them would find them automatically , but worse case scenario, I will go that route just so I can play this darn game lol! @jumper Do you mean the PATH environment strings of the currently installed C++ Redistributables, or the skype dll's shown in Depends? Please excuse my ignorance >.>, but would you mind telling me how I would go about doing that? I uninstalled the game - I can't remember what I was going to try, but if
  8. Hi jumper and Tripredacus, thanks for your replies In regards to those first six files that is shown in "Capture 2"....after some searching, a few sites stated that these have something to do Windows 8 and have no impact on Windows 7. Every app I've run through DependencyWalker shows these files missing, but they aren't impacting the apps' performance at all. DependencyWalker is apparently rather dated and hasn't been maintained in some time, so I'm not sure how reliable it is. However, the fact that it is only this game that is showing the Skype dlls, I think that it would be safe to sa
  9. Hi jumper! Thank you so much for the reply I knew something wasn't right when I saw those entries lol! It's just so weird that that this particular game is the only one that is showing this. No other game I've tested does, however, when I actually launch any of those games, it doesn't show in Task Manage that they are 32-bit apps. I certainly don't want to break Skype. Although my version is pretty old, because a) For some reason I can't recall now, I wasn't able to install a newer version, and b) I hate the more recent versions of the app lol! Also, I can't even tell if the Skype i
  10. Hello I hope it's ok to post about this kind of thing here. I pre-purchased Shadow of the Tomb Raider on Steam for the early access, and have spent the entire time trying to get it to launch I have been searching extensively for any kind of solution. I'm tearing my hair out , and I'm hoping someone can offer some advice.

  11. Hi all, I'm new here and not too computer savvy, but also struggling with trying to prevent being upgraded. I am running Windows 7 64-bit. I have tried to followed the instructions listed in this post ( mainly taking note of all the KB's in the original post), I have set my update settings to :Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install", as well as unchecked "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates", and have tried to go through the installed updates ( uninstalled those that have been listed to avoid), as well as hidden any which are p
