Failed to open descriptor File

Hello, i'm just a guy who is used to play DbD 2eve out of 3, and as i was trying to launch the game last time a window popped up

"failed to open descriptor File....DeadbyDaylight.uproject"

So what is this and what do i do now? nothing works and it keeps coming up when i try to open the game, even reinstalled the Game already but it's still here...

I'll give a pic of the window poping up when i try to open the game right here

Send Help please.

    I get this error now:

    " Failed to open descriptor file '../../../DeadByDaylight/DeadByDaylight.uproject "

    Tried reinstalling, tried verifying files and checking integrity.

    Can't play the game now. How to fix this?

    This is usually caused by Windows not being fully up to date - can you try running Windows update through a few times to make sure? ( you might need to restart your PC throughout the process to get all the updates).

    Edited to add: this error also seems to occur when the game is installed in a location other than the main PC drive, so for example on E instead of C.
