I played and beat all the missions in Ashes Escalation on a previous version (22.214.171.124 I think) and the game ran perfectly, and now I go and update my game (GOG version) to 2.21.26459 and I get "api-ms-win-core-rtlsupport-l1-2-0.dll" is missing from your computer and the game won't start. I installed the game with the full installer (GOG doesn't provide patches, really annoying), it gave me this error, then I tried running the installer again and same issue. Restarted my computer, same issue. I'm running Windows 7.
I tried launching the game with the Ashes exe and the Ashes DX11 and DX12 executables. Same errors (I know DX12 won't work on windows 7, but I tried it just in case). I ran the game perfectly before the updates.
