    According to Microsoft this C runtime library should have been installed in the game's installation directory by the game's installer, but I guess Telltale must have forgot to include it. And since there's a good chance that something else already installed it previously it's easy to overlook this...

    The easiest solution is either searching your hard disc (or the internet) for a copy of MSVCR71.dll and copying it into the directory you installed the game into.

    I've downloaded the ZIP file found here, and the file in there is identical to the one I have installed on my system, so it should work for you. Just download the ZIP file and extract the DLL either to the game's installation folder or your windows\system32 folder (which isn't where it's meant to be installed, but on my system it found it's way there anyway...).

    np: Can - Aspectacle (Anthology (Disc 2))

  • fixed, thanks for the help mate

    much appreiated
