4] Check your anti-cheat program
An anti-cheat program is usually tied to Fortnite in order to prevent users from getting cheated. If they are corrupted, your Fornite won’t open. Hence, you should try to fix them and you can do that easily.
First of all, go to the following location in File Explorer.
C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\FortniteGame\Binaries\Win64\EasyAntiCheat
Open the AntiCheat executable file as an administrator. Then select Fortnite and click Repair Service. Wait for the process to complete and your issue will be resolved.
5] Repair or Reinstall Visual C++ Redistributable
For many resolving Visual C++ Redistributable has worked and it can do the job for you too. So, we are going to first try to repair the service. Follow the given step to do the same.
