Another cause behind this error is the damaged archives (the most popular) of the libraries required to perform the starting the algorithm. In this particular case, they are failures, conflicts, or missing Visual C++DirectX, and .NET Framework files. 

These libraries are required to start most applications so you can be almost sure they are the root of the problem. All you need to solve the problem is to install the missing libraries or update the existing files. 

Visual C++, DirectX and .NET Framework

Without it, certain programs won’t start and you’ll see a warning saying that this component is missing, while games may just crash and show you this error. Installing this component :

Here is an important note: Don’t install just the latest version of the system library but all of which are available. For example, the Visual C++ libraries from version 2005 to version 2015 should be installed. (You can read more in the system library page). 

Also, remember that libraries may have been installed already but work with errors because some of their files are damaged or missing. In this case, remove all their versions with“Programs & Features,” and then reinstall them again.

Method 3. Reinstall Far Cry 4

Another option is to reinstall the game which causes such kind of error. Some files might have been unpacked in the wrong way when you installed the application for the first time. One more thing to do is to always start applications as an administrator.

  1. You need to boot the computer in Safe Mode
  2. Open Command Prompt start it as an administrator and type the command sfc /scannow
  3. It will replace the damaged files with new ones.

Select Properties, and in the window that appears, find the tab “Compatibility.” Find the previous version of the operating system in which the program worked properly. After that, try starting the application again to see if this trick worked.
