tried to play and got the below error message:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error
Program C:\Matrix Games\Unity Of Command\uoc.exe
This program has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way
Contact the applications support team for more information

Hi kvolk,

when installing the game, you are offered to install the required "Visual C++ redistributable" (this is enabled by default). Can you confirm that you indeed installed this?

I did install the Visual C++ and there are several instances of it when I look in add/remove programs.

Looks like a dependency problem related to something specific on your machine. We didn't see this elsewhere.

I'll be sending you a PM with some requests for further information on your setup.

We solved this apparently too. Microsoft should be sending me checks, eh?

If you happen to have this problem, first thing to do is check your installed programs for multiple copies of "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable". One is usually enough. Remember to create a restore point before removing the other ones though. Remove all "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable" packages whose versions start with 9.0.30729.

Then, go to the following Microsoft page, download and install vcredist_x86.exe and reboot.

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=26368

There is no need to reinstall UoC, it should just work once vcredist is sorted out.

I'm not having any problems, but I just checked my installed programs to be nosy. I have eight (8) copies of visual installed on my computer??? One is C++ 2005....

Well yeah, it's a mess.

That said, you should never touch this unless you have a problem IMO.

So you think that I should just leave them?

Yes. I wouldn't worry about them unless there was some sort of a problem like the one kvolk described.

Hi Yamboo,

did you try the following method? Remember to create a restore point or otherwise backup your stuff first.
