How To Fix Error Code 126 (tdatamaster.dll) In Undawn

The free-to-play survival shooter Undawn is now available on mobile and PC, but some users are reporting problems booting up the game on Steam. This guide on How To Fix Error Code 126 In Undawn will tell you how to fix the error regarding the tdatamaster.dll being missing.

Firstly, the tdatamaster.dll file is not actually missing. If you check the games files you will find the file in the directory. You can attempt to repair or redownload on Steam but in our experience, this did not fix the problem. The issue appears to be related to MS Visual Studio.

When you attempt to launch the game via Steam the error reads:
