Fatal Error on Steam but game is loading behind it

I have been getting a fatal error on opening Conan from Steam, after clicking on play on the launcher.

I have verified files, checked drivers on my pc, uninstalled fully and reinstalled, verified again. I play on Official with no mods.

The weird part is the game loads up in the background and runs as normal, but the error closes it. Nothing had changed from when I played the day before.

Any ideas what could be causing it, or something I can do that I have missed?

I have exactly same issue since today, fatal error when lunching game, with steam.
It still runs if I don’t touch this windows and I can play a litle but the game crash at the end after some minutes.
I was playing fine yesterday…
I did nvidia update today at 526.47 version
I tried to reinstall the game, lunch as administrator, verify integrity files
I even downgrownd at 512.15 nvidia version : nothing changed…
