I installed the first episode today and I am unable to launch the game with the short cut created during install. The game put this shortcut into my "Games" folder on my start bar. When I click on the icon, I am prompted to launch the game, I get two pop ups. The first is
Could not load game data!
Make sure you are running the application from the directory it was installed to.
Unfortunately, this error cannot be recovered.
If I manually create a new shortcut it works. I also tried the shortcut in my c:\program files (x86)\Telltale Games\Tales of Monkey Island directory and it doesn't work either. If I edit the shortcut and manually put in the working directory, then the shortcut works. I've added this shortcut to my Games Folder so I can launch the game but for whatever reason, the install did not work.
I am running the RC for Win7 Ultimate for x64.
