Win 7 HP 64 bit, AMD Athlon 2, ASUS mobo, 4Gb RAM
I have a glider sim called 'Glider Simulator' written for XP and published by First Class Simulations in the UK, and every time I try to run it I get an error message saying 'DX8VB.DLL missing - re-install'.
In the last half hour, I have been onto the MS site and downloaded and installed the 'DirectX End-User Runtimes' file to be told I have a later version and no installation is required, and un-installed and re-installed the sim. Only to be told 'DX8VB.dll' missing' ! I have the sim installed on a folder on the 'C; drive, not in 'Program Files x86', as is recommended for older games. I have two other oldish sims - CFS 1 and MS Train Simulator - running on this computer wiithout any problem, which makes it odder.
Anybody got any ideas ?
I am not pretending that this sim is mission critical - I can live without it. But it is annoying, and it is a truly great sim !
