Hi all -

I'm trying to install PVK2 on a new machine, and this bastard of a message pops up every time.

On a clean install of the OS (Windows 7), I installed Steam, installed PVK, and after the game launches, it crashes to this error message just before loading the title screen with the character model.

I uninstalled and deleted PVK, uninstalled and reinstalled Steam, and the same damned thing happens.

Any ideas?

    Where is your pvkii folder? Is it in Common?

    Have you tried deleting you Clientregistry.blob and Client.dll and running an integrity check on PVKII?

    Do you have any -beta's or launch options accidentally set?

    Check your Firewall settings. Does it allow PVKII, HL2.exe, or anything of that nature?

    You may have a conflicting program such as an anti-virus preventing PVKII from launching. I found this searching the error in google. Try this: [LINK REMOVED]

    If all else fails, a wild idea, but might want to try it out - try creating a new steam account and try installing and launching?

    Removed the link you gave, it was some very fishy looking site.
