This version install and updates the game was able to playa quick game against AI successfully
Thanks for the help all.
Hopefully a developer will later be able to tell me how to debug the ucrtbase.dll issue so no one else has this problem
had a look and all is fine, should have full permissions
Unfortunately I'm clueless at this point, I'm installing as admin with an admin account and I've tried installing the FAF client under documents in the case it was having issues with Program Files but no luck
I did try your idea of installing older clients from 1.4 down to 1.0 but all have the same error
So 0.19 has installed and I've linked my steam account etc..
but I'm unable to launch a game

Is that a alpha/beta version of FAF client?
after an upgrade of visual c++ 2019 to 14.28 same issue persists unfortunately
Yes I have both x86 and x64, looks like I am on version 14.24.28127.4
a quick google shows a 14.28 version so I'll try an update
Problem: Unable to install FAF client 1.4.0
ucrtbase.dll Could not create this file. Shall I try again?
Trying again doesn't work

Is there a way to extract more information from the error, so I can figure out the problem?
Anyone else encountered similar issues on this?
