    These didn't work.

    I had already downloaded all redistributes from these 2 pages as provided from another solution:
    Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    I have downloaded these various .dll files and placed them within the correct SysWoW64 & System32 folders:

    I then tried reinstalling Windows 10 (unclean), checking if the solution was fixed, and then put these .dll files back into the folders. (Just incase).

    I have uninstalled the redistributes for a second time, and install them all again.

    Tried installing.NET Framework, however I get an error which tells me that this is included within the OS and is up to date.

    Tried re-installing DirectX.

    Checked for Windows updates, currently up-to date.

    Drivers are up-to date.

    Tried troubleshooting, troubleshooting compatibility, (tried with compatibility to windows 7).

    Tried Running the programs (Smite & Dragons Dogma: The Dark Arisen) again, still not working.

    I have 2 HDD's, One for the OS and the other with my steam library and other games, I tried un-installing Smite on steam, and installing it independently via Smite's website on my C: drive.

    In conclusion I think I my just wipe both drives and reinstall everything (which I don't want to do), I've tried so much and nothing seems to work. If you think I have missed something please help me.

    I'm wondering if I must register the .dll files I have entered into the systems folders with the registry, however I'm not confident using that.
