NWN 2 & vista
« on: February 16, 2010, 11:09:19 PM »
Im helping out a friend thats letting me use there system until i get mine. But I offered to put NWN 2 on it for them. But I get this coming up.

string ERROR_DX_INSTALL was not found in string table

Im guessing it has something to do with vista but not sure.

Arik Donovich - He has found a home, but it has become a prison for him.
Gargain Kernsonn - Ex loyal guard
Laylynn Ravenkin - One personality dead, only two more and I rule alone.

Sounds like some sort of DirectX issue. Try downloading and installing the most recent version of Direct X:

Thank you very much. But I managed to get it running on win 7 no problem on my new system. Then her and I played for maybe 5 mins before seeing that we had wasted our money lol.

NWN2 lost me at character creation.   :lol:
