I've got a fix.

 

You need to install/repair (if already installed - it will give you the option) "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4" 

 

If you have a 64bit OS then you need both the options 64 and 86, if 32bit then just the 86.

 

See the video below that I found showing you how its done:

Can you attempt installation of those items anyway and then if the issue persists, post your Dxdiag report here so we can take a look for you, thanks.

tropico 5 won't launch

★★★★ Novice

I can't get Tropico 5 to play on my computer. When I try to launch it, I get an error message saying "there is a problem with your game's setup. Please reinstall your game." I have tried uninstalling the game and reinstalling 3 times, I've also tried "repairing" the game in origin.

 

My computer is an acer laptop with intel core i5 7th generation with windows 10. My graphics card is a GeForce GTX 1050 ti, and I have DirectX12.

 

PLEASE can anyone help me figure out why it won't play? I've tried looking online and can't find anything.

I am having the exact same error and everything have had me try so far does nothing to fix it.  Other games work fine... just Tropico 5 so far is an issue.

Ea please check this, maybe the same problem ?

Fix dont work on origin launcher,  cant find auto location from installer

 

Tropico 5 fails to start issue (boxed retail) – Hotfix available!

The boxed retail versions of Tropico 5 using Kalypso Launcher have been hit by a hideous activation bug which prevents the Launcher from starting up properly.

If you’re affected, please download and install a hotfix restoring Launcher functionality from this location:

[Removed random .exe download - Admin.]

The Fix will auto-install in the correct installation folder for Tropico 5 and the Launcher will then prompt you for any other available updates.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
