In my experience, runtime errors are a bit of tricky one as the only person that usually understands what the error message means is the developers.

It could be a security issue when your log on account does not have rights to access that area. Are you running Vista or XP? If you're running Vista then that is probably causing the issue as Vista is a nightmare for secuirty.

If it's Vista try right clicking on the icon and going to run as administrator.

It could also be a damaged install file.

I'm running windows XP and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have to do with security, because i only have one windows account and im an admin. so it must have something to do with the game

Yeah, sounds like it. Security can be a weird thing though, you can end up with some folders being owned by the administrator (user) instead of the administrators (group) and this can cause issues with some applications, just a thought.

The installation files maybe corrupted. Can you get a copy of them?

Speak to the game tech support line. They might be able to make sense of the error your getting and if not, then a lot will replace your media or, if you got the game recently, they'll advise you to take it back to the shop for an exchange.

Hope that helps

Ah right. Is it open source? Like a free online game? If so, do they have a forum on their site? Their moderators might have come across the issue before.

I'm not impressed at all with their support. There really isn't much that we can do. You may end up having to email or call them. I saw some similar issues in the their forums, but no one has responded as of yet.
