I am trying to use RoF in my new pc. It worked fine in the old one and it took me about 12 hours to download into the new one (slow connection) and now I find that I can't start the game. It tells me that my email or password are incorrect. I tried to adjust my startupcfg file per a suggestion here and when that didn't work I reset my password but I still get the same problem. I would really appreciate any help in getting me back up in the air. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion J2_Bidu.

I uninstalled the old C++ files and downloaded the latest and that didn't help. However it turns out that the RoF update left an icon on my desktop that took me to the wrong place (settings of some kind) rather than opening the game. Making a shortcut to the correct startup icon fixed the problem. Thanks again for your help J2_Bidu.

You need redistributable files C++ 2005 and 2008 with the last update
2005 for the common game, 2008 for settings screen
2005 comes with the original game
2008 is an extra package, better download it from Microsoft
Game is 32 bits

Moved to a new pc too. Main game is fine, but Settings.exe is flakey. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't open or gets buggy.
A PC restart helps, but that's not always practical.
Also just noticed that the Updater program won't run and gives a side-by-side error. Not that critical i guess but would like it right.
Here are the vcredist files installed attached

I tried running it direct from Release folder, no luck, get the side-by-side error msg. Whereas nothing happens when running from settings.exe.
Do the vcredist files look right?

For some reason that 2005 link didn't work for me so i hunted around at the MS site looking for it. There are a couple of versions but ultimately this one did the trick - Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
From this link - https://www.microsof...ls.aspx?id=5638
So now my RoF is ready for the next update

I recently had a problem with being unable to start the Rise of Flight (RoF) Mission Editor due to this same side-by-side configuration error. J2_Bidu pointed out this thread, and I've tried various combinations. The ones that worked for me was:
https://www.microsof...on.aspx?id=5638-- 2005 VC++
https://www.microsof...on.aspx?id=5582-- 2008 VC++
Note that they are both called vcredist_x86.exe , so either rename them as vcredist_x86_2005.exe and vcredist_x86+2008.exe on download, or do one completely before downloading the other. Also, these are installation packages (ie. download them, then double-click them to run/install). You can check that they are installed by looking at the Control Panel, Programs and Features list. I know that this post is a bit off-topic, but the root cause of the ME not running was the same as this problem here, and I wanted to make a mention of the Mission Editor so a future search engine will turn up this thread as a result. Also, thanks to J2_SteveF, US103+Baer and J2_Bidu for the information and pointers. I'm very happy this is working again for me.

Key for me getting the ROF.exe and Settings files to open was installing the vcredist_x86.exe (C++ 2008 version did it for me) with "run as administrator."
