      Downloading problems

      I finally convinced my friend to join Wizard101. He just got finished downloading it but came across a problem. When it finished installing, and when he clicks the icon, it says:

      "unable to launch game. Please download and run the wizard101 installer again."

      After that came up he did install it again, but it just comes up again. Does anyone know what's wrong? Him and I would greatly appreciate any help andyone can provide, thanks.

      Whoa, I've never seen anything like that! But I always check the firewalls too, just to make sure. You'd be surprised sometimes the problems little things like that can cause, that you might have forgotten you even had.

      Yes but that did not work either. I checked the site and found and answer thank to Mr. Lincoln.

      The Wizard101 installer checks whether the Visual C++ 2005 Runtime redistributable is installed. Wizard101 requires the latest (SP1) version of this redistributable, but the older version has the same registry signature as SP1. So, in cases where the old version is already installed on the your computer, our installer determines that no install is required, but it really is, which causes the endless loop.
      Simply put, there are some Microsoft library files that aren't updated correctly during the install, though you need them to run the game. You can find the installation for the updated file here:
      Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

      Just download and run the file from Microsoft, and launch Wizard101. You should be up and running in no time!

      If you have any trouble or any further questions, please let Mr. Lincoln know via "Ask a Question".

      My son is having the same problems after installing Windows 7 overnight. I've tried the Visual C+++ method and it hasn't helped. Can anyone else suggest something please?

      Problem solved!!

      Actually, hubby has had it running on his computer for a couple of days. He's running the 64-bit version of 7, I'm running the 32-bit version. Since his DOES work, I asked him to look at mine when he got home. Apparently I didn't have my display drivers updated since reformatting overnight, so once he did that, it installed properly. As far as I know Robert hasn't had any problems playing it since his father got it running!
