It''s the usual windows error message. You know the kind that ask you if you want to send an error report to Microsoft. However, I managed to get rid of this problem by opening the file with 'run as' instead of "open" but now I get an error message telling me I'm in the bad directory, which is not true

have you tried reinstalling the game? what os are you using? and what exactly does the error message say? are there multiple users using the system, is it possible some files are in another persons user area??

I tried reinstalling the game in the default directory. I'm using XP. The error message simply say that it is the bad directory and I'm the only user on the computer
