    I've tried installing on two different systems, XP and Win 7 and get the same error on both. "Unhandled exception: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\.....\5thg..tion_0000......72\Data\Content\Tex tures\ControllerHints'...

    I've tried to find 5thgear*.log files on each without luck. When I looked through both systems, I do find the \data\content...\ControllerHints files, but in very different directories...

    We'd love to run the simulators...can anyone help?

      Well, one problem sort of solved...I found out which folders were missing and copied them from zip file.. So now the server works, but when trying to run the controller instance on the same computer things start up..but then I get the error message "unhandled exception: the given key was not present in the directory". I've also looked for 5th*.log files with no luck.

      Any help or suggestions?

        After moving the content folder from the zip file into the data stuff, it runs the program fine.

        But when any client attempts to connect to the server, I get the "unhandled exception: the given key was not present in the directory" thing.

          Guys - Thanks for the "Unhandled Exception" report and other info - I'll make sure David hears about this ASAP so that he can try figure out what is different from our test environment(s) - Blake
