Cannot Load Vanguard

I am not able to get Vanguard to even load. I have validated the files, redownloaded it, etc. The problem seems to lie with Easy Anti Cheat. It gives me an error that says, “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc00000e5). Click OK to close the application.” It comes from Atlas-Win64-Shipping.exe. When I try to relaunch, I get a Launch Error (30005) window, with the explanation “(CreateFile failed with 32.)” I don’t know what to do.

I am experiencing a similar error. I’ve tried launching the “start_protected_game.exe” in the Vanguard/Windows folder and get the same error, even if I run it as administrator. I did the same with the Atlas. It started up and I was excited. However, since it didn’t start with Easy Anti Cheat, it forced me to close the app.

Because we don’t have any reports for it in this forum yet, feedback and further discussions about Vanguard should best be done on the Official CCP Discord Server.
