    Although Steam should download these for you, you're still missing 2022:

    "2023-06-13T06:56:15 0.902 ERR [EOS] Native library or one of its dependencies not found (e.g. no Microsoft Visual C Redistributables 2022)"


    Try downloading the 2022 version and/or verify the game files from Steam two or three times. If Steam reallydoesn't play nice with you, you may need to reinstall it.
