Assassin's Creed Valhalla : Crash At Startup Fix / Launching Problem Fix

This guide is about game crashing problems at startup in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and how to possibly fix them. I have listed the known solutions for now, in the coming days I will edit the post and add new methods.



First, ensure that your system is able to run Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Your PC should at least meet the minimum requirements of the game.

Minimum specs for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 3.1Ghz or Intel i5-4460 3.2Ghz
  • GPU: AMD R9 380 4GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 4GB
  • RAM: 8GB (Dual-channel mode)
  • DirectX: DirectX 12
  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Storage: 50 GB available space

MSVCP140 or VCRUNTIME140 Error Fix

If you see one of these errors upon startup, try this fix. If not, navigate to the second method.
  • Launch Ubisoft Connect.
  • Right-click Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  • Go to your Properties and click “Open Folder” at Local Files.
  • Navigate to Support > Software > VCRedist
  • Double-click the file, it will install the latest C++ Redistributable Runtime library.

Make sure your Windows 10 is up to date and install/repair the latest supported Visual C++ (x86 & x64) on your system.
