Could you run 'winver.exe' for me and check whether you have SP1 installed?

I've just solved the problem:

Step 1 go to: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

Windows 7 SP1
If you have a 64 Bit O/S download and install: Windows6.1-KB976932-x64
If you have a 32 Bit O/S download and install: Windows6.1-KB976932-x86


Virtual C++ 2015 Update 1
Step 2 go to: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49984

If you have a 64 Bit O/S download and install: VC_redist.x64.exe
If you have a 32 Bit O/S download and install: VC_redist.x86.exe

Step 3 when installing the “VC_redist.x64.exe” if prompted with either repair of modify click: Repair

Now the game will run!

I just spent the entire day trying to install this on my PC and had the same issues here. I tried every suggestion listed here, plus a half dozen I dug up elsewhere. I'm running win7 SP1 and far exceed the system requirements. I've been wanting to play this for a while and have had to "hack" and "splice" many other games in the past to get them to work. This is the first to defeat me and it really seems to be a MS issue and possibly not much else. I really hope something changes that helps me all the others having this issue. Win7 still outnumbers Win8 and Win10 combined by my last count. I wouldn't be surprised if most Steam users still run 7. I'm holding off till the end of the month to grab my free upgrade, but this shouldn't be a necessity to run this.

i have same problem today.
It is necessary to install the package from the desktop, I do not know why, but stupid microsoft developers need to know why it works that way.

sorry for my english i resolved in this way:

1. calcel all temp files // search - %TEMP% - cancel all
2. perform clean boot // https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135 - restart
3. install vc_redist.x64 (my is 64 bit) // https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145
4. restart without clean boot! // microsoft link above explains it

maybe someone needs this info. Bye!

Thank you! This helped solve the problem so I was able to run Civilization VI. Hopefully other users having problems with Windows 7 and Civilization VI will see this post.

Although I did have one more problem on my laptop and this helped resolve that:

Had to change the temp folder to install the 2015 c++ Hope it helps!

Can somebody explain me how to do the part 1 in a more understandable way?

I *think* the person is saying to clean the temp folders (I don't search for temp files and not in Windows at the time to try searching for them) but there's two main ones:
C:/Users/*your user dir*/AppData/Local/Temp (hidden)
C:/Windows/Temp

Right clicking on the drive and using Windows system cleaning on it might also do so, but I've always done so manually by going to the folders above.

For the most part it should be of no problem to select all and delete everything possible in the temp folders - but YMMV, you could have something of value depending on how you use Windows (with the way I use it, I just select all and delete from time-to-time.)

I really don't think it will make a difference whether you do it or not, but depending on how much stuff is in there, you might be able to reclaim a nice amount of space.
