Ok I reformatted my Windows XP PC. Vac Chaos ran before this. I did all the windows updates and installed all drivers.
Now I get an error message "The application failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem". I tried littleservertool 1.8.4 and that runs fine.
I dled a dependency program that tells you what file(s) a program is missing to make it run. so it said MSCORE.dll or msscore.dll. Not sure. Anyway I dl the file and extracted it to the windows/system directly like it said. That didn't work so I put it in the system32 directory. Still didnt' work. So I run the dependency program again and it says the same mscore.dll file is still missing.
I'm thinking the file isn't actually being linked to vac chaos like it should. But I don't know how to do that.
Yes there's only one user account on this pc. I right clicked the program and went to properties and I have no antivirus or anythin glike that setup and it says it's blocked... Even when I unblock it. Same thing. I don't understand how I this can happen when I dled it the first time before I formatted and it never got blocked!
Oh hey guys. I didn't install .NET framework. I got lucky and did a install of .NET framework 1.1. So when I tried to run VAC Chaos again it gave me a new error of .NET framework 2.0 or better required to run this program. Problem solved.
