    visual c++ runtime library


    so i've had a lot of issues with windows 8
    i upgraded from 7


    anyway i am trying to play shootmania, and it worked just fine in windows 7.

    now I even reinstalled the game and I keep getting
    "Runtime Error!"
    Program D:\Program Files (x86)\ManiaPlanet\ManiaPlanet.exe

    This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.


    also tribes ascend closes on launching the program, actually all ut3 games don't work.
    I also have that thread on the tile issue i made another thread about.

    Why is Windows 8 so buggy :?
    I didn't have any problems in Windows 7.

    I am considering just reformatting and going back. Which is kind of unfortunate. I like the new system sounds and the sync'd profiles.

    Trying compatibility mode Vista and 7 is the first thing to do.
    Also check to see that the needed ms visual c++ redistributables (2008 - 2010) are installed.

    It's normal, Win8 is new and some programs just don't work.The official launch on the market it's 26th oct so it's still pretty early for some program testing. You're games will get noticed when more people begin using 8 (we had this kind of issues when we moved to vista and 7). Most developers support Win7 because it's in use for quite some time.

    For games like this, you're right, stick with 7 until 8 becomes more mainstream (when they release more drivers and apps for it).

    True what Hapochi said, when the runtime error comes, in Windows 7, it says whether it should run again with compatible settings. I haven't seen Windows 8 showing Re-start program with compatible settings. If it is there, click it.

    Just like Hapochi said, wait until 8 becomes public, and more drivers, plugins and other features will be released on the public market, websites, etc..
