Greetings! I recently purchased both Distant Worlds and the expansion back, RoTS. At first, I installed both Distant Worlds and then RoTS immediately thereafter. When attempting to launch RoTS I received the following error:

I reviewed several threads on these forums and attempted various fixes that were suggested for issues that seemed to be related, however, I've not managed to resolve the issue. I tried running the .NET clean up tool and reinstalling using the version provided in the DW installer. I've also attempted to upgrade drivers for my video card, sound card, etc.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the vanilla DW and RoTS. During this process I noticed that if I install vanilla DW and attempt to run it, it works fine. The issue begins after RoTS is installed. I have not attempted to update either install using the updater (or any other method). But it consistently begins giving the error when I hit "Play" option from the quick launch menu only once RoTS has been installed.

Any advice or help would be appreciated! Thanks!

If the vanilla works than this should not be a problem with the game prerequisites on your machine but something related to ROTS file, if you re download it does it change anything?

Talk about missing the forest through the trees. Re-downloaded the RoTS setup file as you suggested and it worked on the first go.

Note to self: Don't overcomplicate issues! LOL.

Thanks Data, appreciate your time. :)
