After installation, go to the path game, extract vc_redist.x64.exe, then a10 in a subdirectory and copy conctrl140.dll in root installation game

# cd /path_to_game (eg. ./drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Age\ of\ Empires\ Definitive\ Edition)
# mkdir vcredist
# cp vc_redist.x64.exe vcredist/
# cd vcredist
