I am a long time XCOM fan and I wanted to try Xenocide, but I am having some problems. I am running Vista Home Premium SP1 on a Dell Inspiron 1525. I downloaded and installed the XNA Refresh 1.0 Runtime Distribution and DirectX 9.0c from Microsoft and I already have .NET 2.0. I installed with all the bonus material and everything seemed to go fine.

When I start the game I get this error:
Exception: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)
StackTrace:
at ProjectXenocide.Program.CheckGraphicsHardware()
at ProjectXenocide.Program.Main() in E:\PXenocide\trunk\trunk\Xenocide\Source\Program.cs:line 47

Can anyone help? I would love to try this game out!

This error suggests that there is a file missing.
To determine the missing file, I suggest you use the Assembly Binding Log Viewer (Fuslogvw.exe)

That said, most likely problem is wrong version of DirectX 9.0c is loaded. see http://www.xcomufo.c...h...2028968&hl=

Saving the world from the scum of the universe is hard work. Especially when you have to create the scum to begin with.
