I have an external hard disk with games connected to my computer. When I try and open a slots game I get message:
"This aplication has failed to start because mAnimation.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
I've goggled trying to find how to get this application, but the places I've gone want $$ to help me. Any suggestions??

Thanks so much!

That problem happens when you install a game on a external drive, and try to play it on a different computer. When you install a game it installs files to your registry that is required to run-if you choose an external hard drive as a install location, it will put the bulk of the files on the external, but still install files to your windows registry. You really do need to reinstall the games on the computer you intend to play them on, and I would suggest installing the entire game to the local hard disk because it will improve performance.

its not a problem, and like I said you can still keep the bulk of the game on the external if you want-but you will have to install them while its hooked onto the computer you wish to play them on so the program can make the appropriate registry changes.
