If you're new to THUG Pro or haven't updated THUG Pro since before version 6
and THUG Pro no longer runs after an update or after a fresh install.

The error message appears a few different ways;
THUGPro.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
or message mentioning \SYSTEM32\MSVCR120.dll not working.
or THUGPro.dll not found.
If you get the last message make sure THUGPro.dll does exist in the THUG Pro game direct (drive letter):\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\THUG Pro\ before continuing with this process.

Assuming THUGPro.dll does exist.
This issue is a missing or damaged Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package ... le-package

Follow the link and locate the (x86) package for your OS language.
THUG2 is a 32 bit game this is why you need to the x86 version.
If it already exist on your system you'll need to uninstall the existing file and restart your system.
Install the package you download and restart your system.

Run THUG Pro to test if it works.

If after all of that the game still crashes at startup try removing your save files.
Copy them to a different location first to back them up.
Test the game with no save files in (drive letter):\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\THUG Pro\Save\

Not working also, deleted all saves too.

When I reinstalled THUG PRO, i have theses errors in the log, files are not created by the installer also, don't know if this is fatal:

Code: Select all

[04-05-2019 @ 02:03]: Couldn't open User\manifest_soundtracks.dat (2)

I receive the same error logs described by Catarax post. I have fresh installed THUG2 and THUGPro a few times, as well as the instructions outlined in the OP. I don't have either of the files in the error log present in my User/ folder. Windows 10

Those errors are not fatal.
Update windows 10 and see if that fixes it as that seems to fix many windows 10 users crashing on startup.
