@Bellsanxx what the exact message ? That seems to be the initialisation error ?

What security software are you using ?

@Bellsanxx This is usually caused by Defender. Did you turn that off ? Don't think Windows 8.1 has ransomware protection though so maybe it is avg blocking the user folder in your case.

Try adding the game as exception to the AVG: https://crinrict.com/blog/2020/10/add-exceptions-to-anti-virus-programs.html#avast

@Bellsanxx Do you have admin rights on your computer ? Could you test if it works on a new windows user ?
