Reload the files? How can I do it? (I know, I'm a terrible dummy T.T)

Also, I have checked the CoW folder...and Mss32dll is there, apparently...so I don't know why it said to me otherwise...

can you see a folder called Redist? inside there should be some exe, 1 to 3 at most, re run these as see if it helps

I searched in my /Programs/Slitherine/CoW folder, but I found no Redist folder....

How to get a DxDiag report file:

1. Click on "START" (on Windows 8 press “Windows key” and the “R” key at the same time)
2. Click "run" (skip this step on Windows 8)
3. Type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. Check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. Click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice

We prefer that DxDiag files be posted as message attachments rather than pasted into the body of the post.

That usually means a 3rd party program, like an Internet security programs, is interfering with the game installation.

add the exe of the game to your Anti Virus and firewall program, to make sure check the logs of these to see if it was one of them which was to blame.

run the game from a admin account and use full admin permissions.

please make sure all game pre requisite are installed with the game, even if you think or fully know there are already installed, it will only over write, and it may be that you have a older or newer version of these where as the game in question may need a certain version.

please make sure you are running the latest version,

It will have the original version. So you'll need to update it from the Internet.
Please note that you'll only need the last update, as our updates are comprehensive.

You are running the extracted file (CoW_1.2.1.exe) without having it copied to the game installation folder.

I copied the 1.2.1.exe inside the folder, then I used it to launch the game. And, indeed, the crush problem vanished.......but now, it doesn't allow me to save games o.O

Open the game installation folder. Locate and select a file named CoW_1.2.1.exe.
Press the right mouse button and select Properties.
Click on the Compatibility tab.
Tick the option Run this program as an administrator.
Click on Apply and Ok.

Sadly I have to report the similar issue..

Yesterday I bought CoW and after I follow the instructions in the tutorial and conquer the city, it crashes. After post battle results it goes back to map and seconds after it crashes...
Bought Spartan and Gates of Troy as well and having no problems with those two, but CoW is the different case. I will certainly contact the mail address written above as its the same I got with my invoice even though it says info rather than support... :)

But all in all I have the same issue.. After I conquer the city in tutorial it crashes O_O

Edit:
I was faster than I should be and did read only the first page. So after I read the whole topic I downloaded the ''hot fix'' file and it seems to work for me now.. will try to install the same file on my desktop once at home and will see..

Thanks for the solution !
