I recently found my mechwarrior 4 disks and decided to install the game again, upon completetion of said install i clikced the pretty play now button...just to be smacked in the face with an error drwtsn32.exe failed to initialize, could not find dbgeng.dll, re-installing may solve the problem...after a couple attepts to troubleshoot the issue, ie reinstalling, hitting up microsoft support, calling them and complaining, reinstalling a few more times, then attempting to run drwtsn32.exe from the run line just to get the same error, i stumbled my way across this forum and thought i'd give a post and see if you guys are able to help at all...

also attempted to find a means of downloading drwtsn32.exe to no avail...

currently running Tiny XP 2003 by eXperience

Exact error text:
"drwtsn32.exe - Unable To Locate Component
X This application has failed to start because dbgeng.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

No. What your running is only a "subset" of xp. not meant for full time use. Normally only used in emergencies and for troubleshooting issues.
