Launcher Starts Launcher

Postby xpo777 » Mon Oct 31, 2011 1:11 am

Hello there, i preordered the Game for me and also gave it as a gift to a friend on Steam. My copy of Trine 2 works perfeclty, i had no difficulties at all! However, when my friend starts the launcher and presses the "Start Game" Button it just closes the Launcher and after a second the Launcher Pops up again. I've updated all his drivers and checked the logs for any clues but i found nothing. We also tried to reinstall and start the Launcher and Game (trine2_32bit.exe and trine2_launcher.exe) as Administrators but that did not change the situation.

Does anybody else have also this problem too ? If not, is there anything we can do or try ?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for supporting us - I'm confident we can get this solved. :)

Here's a similar post that got solved by installing .NET framework. That's something you can try.

Also, you can try launching trine2_32bit.exe directly from the game's folder. It might give an error or just work...

Let me know.

I already did that:

Will check the .NET issue and report back.

Yeah :)

Just came back to say that i've reinstalled PhysX and .NET 3.5 and 4 and after that it worked (tough .NET and Physix WHERE already installed on his System and every Package was up-to-date!)

Strange... anyway, our problem is solved.

Ok good. PhysX should not be a problem in Trine 2 as we include all the necessary files with the game, so it was probably .NET in this case (not quite sure why exactly).
