Spore GL:5626

★★★★ Novice

I recently bought spore and installed it onto my macbook pro. When ever I try to run the game an error code pops up and says 'Error:GL 5626: game can not run' I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but the same code keeps popping up. Please help.

Hello stephernee,

 

Does your computer meet the system requirements and are your drivers up to date?

Hello stephernee,

 

This error message is usually a combination of a corrupted install and server licensing error. This may be associated with installing Spore on top of Creature Creator--Creature Creator is supposed to be uninstalled prior to installing Spore.

 

A few steps you could try:

  • Try manually uninstalling Creature Creator--which is different than using control panel so please do click the link and follow the directions as indicated
  • Try right clicking the Spore icon and Run as Administrator (for Vista and Windows 7 users)

That happened to me. I never got it to work, but it was because my computer didn't have enough ram to run it. Check you available ram against the requirement. Good luck! Confusedmileywink:

I have that too, and my computer has 8 GB and I can't remember exactly how much ram it said it required but I'm pretty sure it was 4GB or less, and I uninstalled the creature creature, but this problem persists for me as well anyway...

I am having this problem too, but I never got Creature Creator at all. I'm on Windows 10, and I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, and running it as admin, but nothing happened. I also bought the game used so I had to get the CD Key off of the internet.

If it still doesn't work, use the CCleaner and install it again
