The Backstory:
I hate Windows the point that I'm going back to Windows 7 for the live server. Unfortunately, the system I use regularly is's also where I test my server before I make it live.
When I got the system, I don't recall having any trouble getting everything to work right...I don't know...maybe I just installed enough software that the interdependencies worked on their own. Anyway, after numerous issues the system developed from trying to update Ark...I came to the realization that I just needed to reinstall the cursed operating system (it's good to reinstall annually if the system gets a lot of use...just because Microsoft has always had issues with the registry getting super cluttered).

The issue:

The server loads just find....but it crashes immediately as my mobile is moved to world. It's not just this shard, I've tried others and they all do the same. It's not client specific either, as the other shards use different clients. The .dll's are in the server folders. I've tried copying them to the system32 folder (and other places Windows might look) but it doesn't help.

I know this is a Windows issue but I can't think of what I'm missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

As a side note, I can't get GogGalaxy to install because it says that I'm missing Service Pack 1. I was under the impression that 10 kept up to date. I bring that up because the two issues feel like they might be connected in some way.

Thanks, but that was one of the first things I tried....

Okay....something with the redistribution package that comes with Sins of a Solar Empire fixed it. :rolleyes:


Hmm odd that the linked one didnt work for you.

As it is the needed version.

But as long as it works for you now? Thats good :)
