Help! Can't Startup Game

Post by ZakMack » Fri Aug 15, 2014 4:18 pm

I recently bought "Fort Zombie" and I downloaded the game but once I started up the launcher, I got this error message:

Fort Zombie [450a9c27-2bed-4430-9045-debda69458f9]
Time: 8/15/2014 11:13:46 AM (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

Unhandled exception encountered:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

I have all the PC system requirements but I get this report every time I launch the game. The game is up to date (1.0.7) and I've attempted to un-install and re-install the game several times but it did not work. I have googled other forums and found out that a lot of people sadly have this exact same problem. Is it possible that the download has a corrupt file or is missing files? If so, is there any patches for the 1.0.7? Thanks for any input to this problem :(

Sounds like you either need direct x 9.0c installed, or an older version of Microsoft visual c compiler installed... Doubt it's a net framework issue, but wouldn't hurt to update that as well...

Thank you so much :) It was the direct x 9.0c. For some reason, it wasn't working. I un-installed it and got it back and now it works. The game runs smoothly and works perfectly! I owe you one :D

Some games of a particular generation have issues with DX11; even a game as recent as Dragon Age II is crash-prone if you run it under 11.
