Thu Oct 13, 2016 7:42 pm

So my game dl and installed fine, i changed a few settings, and now it wont run. I have tried run as administrator, and also run in windows 7 and vista compatibility mode.
It ran the first time right after install, but now the exe fails to launch.

I changed the setting to send error reports to ageod.
No error message, the game worked at first launch, now after restarting, it wont launch. Tried deleting it and re-installing from the link i was sent in email, and now it wont finish instalation.........sigh

Did you install the game as an administrator? If not, that would be the place to start.

Could it be your antivirus?

I will turn off all firewalls and try to download again.
It also does a wierd thing, hangs for 10 minutes with a full green bar on instalation, then finally pops up as done, when i launch in compatibiolity mode and run as admin, it does nothing.

Try this:
Remove the program, make certain the existing folder is gone.
Do the same for the Saves Folder (especially check to see this is removed) Search for it if you do not know where it is stored.
Empty the trash.
Restart your computer.
Turn off your antivirus program.
Run the install as an admin.

Oh, light a candle to the god of games before doing the above.

Good luck.

I forgot to add, make sure you install in Windows 10. Use compatibility mode only after the install.

Have you removed the game from the control panel?
And tried to install in a different folder?

The Support helpdesk knows not of any compatibility issue with Windows 10, so please try installing the game in compatibility mode, with admin rights and in C:\games.

If the problem remains contact support@slitherine.co.uk
