Launch code error

Hi,would like to know if there is a work around the damn error i keep getting ''Launch code 23''
game was working awesome yesterday know it wont work when trying to launch it just keep getting the ''fun'' error code.... did verify on steam and check the ''easy cheat'' thing every thing shows fine but game wont work 😞

Ok found the bug fix for this ''Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 and others'' i removed all of them restarted the PC and BOOM! back in the game easy!! pretty pissed about it but yea,now i can get back to the Emperors work!
