Try reinstalling the C++ redist would be my guess (The ".cpp" extensions in the error).

Quickly googled the error and it also might have something to do with your screen resolution and/or refresh rate. In Win7 go to

%SystemRoot%:\Users\%LoggedInUser%\Documents\My Games\men of war - assault squad\profiles\player

and open a file called "options.set" in a text editor and check what resolution mowas is trying to start in. You could also edit the file to set it to something that should work on your system.

Thanks for the help, it seems it was the resolution. Had to change it to windowed mode in-game for it to fix and stay with the resolution i usually use.
