Grounded won’t start, how to fix it?
Some dll files that come with “Visual C ++ Redistributable” installations on Windows may be missing or corrupt. So you should download and install the latest supported Visual C++ Redistributable.
VCRuntime140.dll is often the cause of this problem. To have a fresh VCRuntime140.dll file, you must install Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable. You have to install both x86 and x64 versions.
Uninstall your graphics drivers completely using the Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) app, then download and install the latest versions.
