this happens to Sleeping Dogs, not Definitive Edition. I like to play the old version because it's lightweight, I can save my disk space.
I completed the game with no problem, but suddenly now, the game shows this error each time I start the game after a few minutes.
this application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way
If I ignore the error, I can continue to play my game, if I press Ok, the game crashes.
I don't like the error message so I google the error, first I think the problem may cause by
microsoft visual c++ redistributable version conflict, thus I just uninstall all
microsoft visual c++ redistributable versions available on my PC and install the latest
microsoft visual c++ redistributable, but the problem still persist. So I know this must be the bad code of the game.
How can I fix it?
