    Hi, I hope it's OK to post my problem here.

    I never knew about btb, can't wait to try it out as I've always wanted to build my own tracks.... And with btb this seems amazingly easy to do :)

    Anyway, atached is the startup error message + two system screenshots. I don't have problems with any other 3D or imaging software. I wanted to try it with RBR.

    It crashes upon startup. What's the matter?

    Make sure you have met the Prerequisites.
    Windows XP (32 bit)
    A shaders 2.0 capable video card
    The latest DirectX drivers. Note: there are several version of 9.0c, get the latest ones! Download them again just in case. Be aware, DirectX 10 does NOT contain DirectX 9; it must be installed independantly.
    Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 (it will be downloaded during the installation process if it's not already installed)

    It runs on Vista and Windows 7 but only XP is supported by Brendon

    Thanks for the replies,

    As far as I know I do meet all requirements (see screenshot 2 and 3, showing information)
    Looking at the error message it looks more like there are files missing rather than versions incompatible.
