Hello.
I downloaded the trial version of the RPG Maker VX Ace. From your homepage. I installed everything, by following the instructions on your site. But when I go to start the program, I get this.

I tried, uninstalling the program, and reinstalling it, and did a system restore. But I still get this.

I would love to try your program, and most likely buy it, but if I can't even get the trial version going, I'm not gonna take a chance in buying.

I have Windows 7.

Can anyone please help me. I am totally lost on this ....

Thank you


From what I see I do have the dll ...

but I still get the same problem ... machines hate me I swear lol


I tried changing the program compatibility. But it still doesn't work ...

By the way, I applaud you for posting a screenshot.

Most user's just say "It broke.. HELP!" but they don't post any type of error or error code. So I /clap for you :D

Additionally, did you change the install directory in any way?

While I didn't have to run it as admin, I had installed it to my hard drive (E:\) instead of my SSD (C:\).

If you installed it to the default directory of either C:\Program Files\Enterbrain\<etc> (for 32-bit) or C:\Program Files (x84)\Enterbrain\<etc> (for 64-bit), you will more likely than not NEED to run it as an administrator. Installing it to somewhere like C:\RPGMaker\ will usually sidestep the "run as admin" thing.

(edit: I run Win7 64-bit, for reference)

Okay, first instinct is to try installing it to C:\RPGMaker as opposed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterbrain to see if that works.

if not, we'll need to bug Touchfuzzy or Nathaniel or someone over at Degica to help, since I'm out of ideas beyond that.

Wait wait, I know for VX you have to install the RTP. If Ace has something similar have you tried installing that?

Hey bunnymaxwell. Thanks for the screenshot. Looking into this now. Hang tight :)

Edit:
We think this may have to do with the DLL not being in the GAC (global Assembly Cache)

Would you be able to check your GAC
http://en.wikipedia...._Assembly_Cache
%windir%\assembly\

and see if there is a CogenDRM.dll there ?

thanks!
