Re: C++ version

@Murmullis  TS4 uses an older VC++ because it was originally released in 2014.  The older versions do work in Windows 10, or else none of us running it could play older games at all.

 

Open Settings > Apps on your computer and uninstall whatver version(s) of 2013 VC++ you see, then download a new one directly from Microsoft:

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
