What are your computer specifications?

Have you tried clearing your download cache under Steam's [Settings > Downloads > Clear Download Cache]

Have you verified the game's cache? (Steam -library: Little Nightmares -> RMB -> Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache)

Have you run the redistributable files manually?
  1. Steam -library: Little Nightmares -> RMB -> Properties -> Local Files -> Browse Local Files)
  2. Open up the _CommonRedist -folder
    • DirectX > Jun2010
      • DXSetup.exe
    • vcredist > 2015
      • vc_redist.x64.exe
      • vc_redist.x86.exe
  3. Right mouse click: Run as administrator

What's your antivirus? Tried putting the game's folder in its real-time scan exceptions (if temporarily) to see should that help launch it?

Do your other games launch, or is it just Little Nightmares that you're having problems with?


Give these a look too,

It seems that I have several problems to install vc_redistx86 and vc_redistx64, but i dont know exactly what is the problem

Reminds me of one person the other day who had issues installing the DirectX redists because of IOBit Malware Fighter.

vcredists should be for the Visual C++ though, but that being said. If you have something on your computer that might prevent file execution, I'd look at those first.

I reinstall both Visual C++ and the game still works
Hello, I'm having the same problem over here. I tried all the listed solutions but nothing happened. My computer can run the game, so I don't know what's happening

Solution here is out of date. Just bought game and won't launch. There are no redistributables to be found.

Steam\steamapps\common\Little Nightmares

Only 2 folders:
> Atlas
> Engine

Thought I'd look in the ThirdParty folder and still nothing.

Same issue here. Unfortunately REL's solution didn't work.

I managed to find the _CommonRedist in another game's folder and ran the setup and now it works.

What folder did you find it in?

In another game's folder.

It's usually in the root.
