Bump; Had similar issue, I'm running windows 8, game would not launch at all, tried many things. For me vc_dist and directx wouldn't update auto- Here is manual process:

browse local game files by right click civ VI in library, navigate to ---

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Base\Binaries\Win64Steam\CivilizationVI

and try manual launch.
if you recieve error like XINPUT1_3.DLL not found:

Install / Re-install latest revision of directx
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

If you have error Api-ms-win-crt-runtime-L1-1-0.dll

Try manually launching the vc_dist for 2010 / 2015 @
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\_CommonRedist

running those should install/repair necessarily, but for 64 bit windows here is a direct link

http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/3/F/93FCF1E7-E6A4-478B-96E7-D4B285925B00/vc_redist.x64.exe


When I try to install vc_redist.x64 it is stuck on 'processing'. It wont install completely.

That worked, thanks @Fulcrum you made my day!
I'm on win7 64bits, was getting the Api-ms-win-crt-runtime-L1-1-0.dll error, reinstalled the vc_redlist and that fixed it.
Cheers!

Worked, but I needed to reinstall VC++ Redistributables 2015-2013-2012-2010 manually from controll panel.

Thanks and cheers!
