Gaming

So, I have been trying to play Battlefield 4 on Windows 7 Pro x64 and came across a few issues. The 32 bit launcher worked with no issues at all.

After reading all the posts on various sites, I updated Direct X and checked my Video card Drivers, all were already up to date as I thought they would be.
I tried file permissions and all the other solutions given even though I was NOT expecting many to work as they seemed illogical.

After a few hours I looked at the Distributables that BF4 needs.

After installing the VC REDIST x64 Battlefield 4 works perfectly 🙂
Don’t know why no one else has sussed this out :p
Hence my post here!

I started on computers back in the days of the Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, back when people were coming to terms with how great their new digital watch was. Even though I worked in DIY Shops, Fancy Goods, the building trade, DJ’ing etc, my main interest and passion was always in coding, graphics and games. I decided to take the plunge into computer shops in the mid 90’s and in 2003 set up my own computer business.
I have a simple work ethic which is I prefer to make a little money often, rather than charging a fortune and losing customers. This has proven to work for me and my customers. In all the years I have traded I have never advertised and yet each week, I get new customers through recommendations – there is no higher praise :)

What are your thoughts?
