View Full Version : Crash to Desktop

I am curious, has anyone run into a crash on launch bug? I tried running this on my wife's laptop, and it just starts to load, then crashes to desktop. Looking for a possibly fix/solution. I have messed with the settings, but it just crashes on launch, irregardless of graphics settings or resolution. Haven't seen anyone else asking about this, so I figured I'd post a thread, and see what you all have to say. Thanks!

Sorry about the trouble. Fractal needs the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8328) to run properly. Without it, the application quits to the desktop. The installer is included with the application, but we've had an issue with it not installing on some systems. Best solution is to download the package from the Microsoft website and install it. What operating system and virus scanner do you have installed?
