Demo DLL error msg after install on PC
« on: August 29, 2012, 02:50:48 PM »
Hello,

I thought I would check out the Cogs PC demo. I installed the exec file with no probs; but launching the demo yielded a DLL error msg, which also suggested that I reinstall. Which I did: uninstall, then install again -- and same error msg. Nothing more I can do. Which leads me to not want to install the actual game for fear of the same problem.

I'm running Windows XP media SP3.

Unfortunately we've let the stand-alone demo (available from www.cogsgame.com) lag a bit behind the version on Steam.  Especially if you already have the Steam client installed, you may want to consider instead trying out the free Cogs demo here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/26500/

I dunno... all I wanted to do was check out a demo and the next thing I know I'm installing a program that appears to not do anything, and creating an online account -- after which, it didn't lead me to anything but this forum, etc.

Sorry, but I'm outta here.
