  • Failed to start process for Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam

    Download and reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages (x86 and x64) - run the installers as an administrator.
    1. Verify integrity of the game files as described
    Code: 1. Launch GOG GALAXY and log in with your account. 2. Choose the game from 'Owned games' tab. 3. Click 'Customize' button (to the right of "Play" button) > Manage installation > Verify / Repair
    Steam: 1. From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu. 2. Select the "Local files" tab and click the "Verify integrity of game cache..." button. 3. Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.
    Epic Games: 1. In the Library section, navigate to the game and click on the three dots. 2. Click Verify in the drop-down list. 3. It may take a few minutes to verify all the files.
    2. If you have any applications that are using overlay features, e.g Discord, Ubisoft Connect, Galaxy etc. disable their overlays or completely disable these applications.
    3. Disable all unnecessary apps before launching the game. Including hardware monitoring and antivirus/anti-malware programs.

    Steam will then say something like : Failed to acquire this and that number of files, then it will download them again.

    That should do it
