When launch the game from my steam library it says "Running" for a short time, but then nothing happens. Re-installing didn't help.

    Could you post your system specs? Have you tried validating the integrity of the game cache on steam (Properties -> Local Files -> Validate Integrity of Game Cache)?

    Thanks for your reply.
    I have validated the game cache multiple times and seems to be intact.

    I'm trying to play the game on an ASUS ROG G750J notebook. It's got a Core i7-4700HQ, a GeForce GTX 770M and 8 gb of RAM, OS Win 8.1

    Things you can do:
    1. Install latest graphic drivers
    2. Start the game manually - it will probably still not start, but you might get an error message:
      In your Steam library rightclick on EVERSPACE => Properties => Local Files => Browse local files => Everspace.exe
    3. Install prerequisites manually and with admin rights - might solve the problem or at least give you an error message:
      In your Steam library rightclick on EVERSPACE => Properties => Local Files => Browse local files => Engine => Go to Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us\ => Rightclick on UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe (or _x32.exe for 32Bit Windows) => Start as Administrator
    4. Make sure all necessary dependencies are installed:
      Please go to Start => Control Panel => Windows Update => Check for updates => Install all available updates. After the updates are installed, restart your computer. After the restart repeat the steps above again until no more updates are available.
      Also have a look if there are any updates listed in the "Restore hidden updates" category. If so you have to solve this problem first.
      Finally you can start the installation of the redistributables manually be starting "EVERSPACE\Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us\UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe" (or _x86.exe for 32Bit systems)
    5. See there are helpful informations in the log files:
      Press 'Windows-Key' + 'R' => Enter %localappdata% => Press Enter => Go to RSG\Saved\Logs and open the latest .log files (if there are any)

    When I try to launch the game out of it's folder, I get an error, the api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll would be missing.

    Ok, that sounds familiar. You should be able to fix this, by working through step 4 and 5 of this list!

    My game crashed in game menu, too. Before the game crashed I saw distortion of the image, the mouse froze and the screen went blank. The next moment I was on my desktop and the error message appeared below. Latest Crimson drivers are installed and the problem is only since the update today.

    LowLevelFatalError [File:D:\Build\++UE4+Release-4.12+Compile\Sync\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 180]
    Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. D3D device was not available to assertain DXGI cause.
