If I had the time I'd use the link to download the latest download version available on the native game creators product page into a Windows 10 sandbox VM to replicate the issue.
I do not have any plug ins on this laptop, in fact AppGameKit Studio was one of very few things installed on this refurbished laptop. Is there a way to investigate the dependence's within the download package I sourced from the Game Creators Products page, as opposed to Steam?
My Windows player is also 26 01 23 @ 1330. There seems to be a reason for that version of the AppGameKit player to require the DirectX Webplayer described above to resolve the 260123 release?
