Prototype startup error (Virtual Machine)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I really wanted to play this year's prototypes in a decent way, so instead of trying to use some WINE trickery on my MBP I set up a Win 7 virtual machine in VMware Fusion (boot camp was honestly out of the equation). The VM is working well and it got all the latest OS updates.

When I try to run LPBB I get a System error saying the program can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from my computer.

After some googling I installed Visual C++ redist, rebooted and… nothing. Same error :(

Am I doing something wrong?

Also googling around for "MSVCR100.dll" I found a generic hint that copying the dll from Win/Sys32 to the game folder could help in some occasions... I tried that but got another error instead:

Any help would be appreciated :/

I believe this happens when you don't have the appropriate redistributables installed.

They're certainly bundled with the Steam version-- is there a folder in the DRM-free version that contains these?

A Redist folder in the root directory or something?

Maybe even check the other AF games in case it's missing from the LPBB package...
