Ive tried updating my drivers............any help would be greatly appreciated. GOG support is useless.

Sounds like you need to update visual c++, you should be able to find the update online. I'd have thought it should be with the driver install, maybe you need to do a clean driver install or reinstall the game.

In your game folder there is a folder called __redist. Inside this folder will be 3 other folders, DirectX, MSVC2012, MSVC2012_64. Open the MSVC folders and run the executable in each of these. This will install the necessary Visual C libraries that you're missing. Try run the Blood and Wine installer after that. If that doesn't work then you can get the latest (2015) from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=48145. Download both the x86 and the x64 versions and install those then rerun the Blood and Wine installer.

Also, are you sure your game is on 1.21? You can check by looking beside the Play button in GOG:



Or if you aren't using the GOG client, you can see the version number at the top of the main menu. Update your game if it isn't 1.21 and like before try the installer again and let us know how that goes.

To run the executables double click the files beginning with vcredist which I told you where to find/download from. Executable files are those which end in .exe, although the ending is likely hidden unless you have enabled it yourself. Even if you had no problems running the game before Blood and Wine, something may have changed in Blood and Wine which requires updated versions, even just to install it. It's worth trying to install them again as that seems to be the issue if you are seeing an error about Microsoft Visual C++ libraries.

To uninstall the game you can simply delete the entire game folder. To remove it from programs and features just double click it there as if you were uninstalling something normally and it will tell you that it can't find the uninstaller (since you deleted the folder it is within) and will let you delete the shortcut and that will be it uninstalled.

If you're reinstalling the game from scratch it may add Blood and Wine automatically without you manually installing the DLC from the downloaded installer as when I updated my game for Blood and Wine I didn't have to manually install it. Check that you don't already have it installed although I'm not sure that it would give you a Visual C++ error if that was the case. You can check if it's installed by clicking beside the version number in the image in my previous post, then scroll down.

I will try all of this when I get home. I appreciate it a lot thank you for the response. I'm not sure the Microsoft Visual C++ is causing the error, it just shows a box saying Microsoft visuals and a bar underneath it that says processing. it flashes twice before the error occurs

How is global illumination in Witcher 3? Is it as good as Assassin's Creed: Syndicate or Unity?

CDPR downgraded lighting big-time since 2013 and even 2014. Witcher 3 lighting is NOT impressive and neither are the textures. The rest of graphical aspects are very nice and the overall graphics is great.
