I'm experiencing an issue where I'm only able to successfully launch the game with autorun.exe. If I attempt to launch DistantWorlds.exe directly I receive the following windows error messages:

Distant Worlds has stopped working.


Is this expected behaviour, and if so, is there anyway to change it?

Hello Wipqozn;

Right click on the Distantworlds.exe file and select "Run as Administrator"
Hopefully that will solve your issue. If not, please post back and also
state what operating system you are using. Hope this helps!
