The following are the fixes that will help Lies Of P players fix the Unexpected error.

Install/Repair Visual C++ Redistributables

Visual C++ Redistributable is an important piece of software and without it, no game would run on your Windows OS. Either you are missing important Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable install or it’s files have gone corrupt. You can fix the Lies of P Unexpected error by installing or repairing the Visual C++ Redistributables. There are two ways to do it, one is through Steam and the other one requires you to manually download the Visual C++ Redistributables setups and install them.

  • Open your Steam library, type ‘Steamworks’ in the search bar
  • Right-click Steamworks Common Redistributables > Manage > Browse local files
  • A new Explorer window will open
  • Go to _CommonRedist\vcredist
  • You’ll find folders each containing the VC_redis setup
  • Run the setups one by one, both x86 and x64 versions
  • If it’s already installed, it’ll ask you to repair it, otherwise, it’ll just ask you to install it
  • Restart your PC
  • Launch Lies Of P and the Unexpected error is now fixed

If repairing the Visual C++ didn’t fix the Unexpected error, then download and install the latest Visual C++ redistributables both x86 and x64 versions. This will fix the Unexpected error.

Disable Anit-Virus

PC users often install third-party anti-virus software to protect their systems from hacks and malware. However, these anti-virus software can detect game executables as virus or malware and it is probably the reason why Lies Of P is crashing with the Unexpected Error. DeepGuard is often the anti-virus software that blocks game executables. If you have installed a third-party anti-virus, either disable real-time protection or exclude the Lies of P install folder from it, I recommend the latter.

After that, verify game files by right-clicking the game in Steam library > properties > installed files > click “Verify integrity of game files”.

Open properties by right-clicking the game.

For those who are using Gamepass, right-click Lies Of P in the Xbox app > Manage > Files > click “Verify and Repair”.

Right-click Lies Of P and select Manage.
Go to the Files tab and click Verify And Repair.

Remove Unnecessary Peripherals

PC gaming has its advantages like using any peripheral you want like a controller, mouse and keyboard, HOTAS, and more. However, these third-party peripherals like controllers and HOTAS can cause Unexpected error with Lies Of P. These peripherals often have their own driver and software which can conflict with the game and cause the Unexpected error. Remove any third-party peripheral you have plugged into your PC and the error will be fixed.

Disable Third-Party Software

Using third-party tools or software like MSI AFterbuner, RGB software, and more is common practice on PCs. These third-party tools are useful but can interfere with games and cause errors. Third-party software/tools is the reason for the Lies Of P Unexptec error. Disable any third-party software you have installed and the euro will be fixed.
