    Hiya Alex,

    I have changed my system specs and GPU... new Motherboard/Processor etc etc... basically a new PC.

    This started since that point. I have tried uninstall and reinstall the game... Error still comes up :(

    Any idea's?

    Make sure you´re running the game with administrator rights (right-click the GSC icon and select "run as admin").

    I think you need to delete your license data and re-activate.

    Move the ProgramData\Reiza folder elsewhere and try again.

    Yes Phil - please follow Alex´s suggestion. "Error(513)" is your actual problem, looks like your Game install got corrupted. You need to delete the folder "reiza", which should be in :/programdata (or :/documents and settings/application data , if you are running WinXP).

    You can still back up your "userdata" folder to place it in your new install, in order to restore your player settings and setups.

    Guys I am running Windows 7 and can not find a Reiza folder nor a program data folder?

    Hence my inability to follow Alex's post :(

    Will try another uninstall fresh install and see what happens...

    Control Panel - Folder Options - View - Show Hidden Folders and Files.

    Try again :)

    Alex,
    I have now located said folder thanks. ... however it was empty?

    I deleted it as requested and went to reboot the game as Administrator.... Error 513 still, even after fresh install?

    Do you think you can format your hard drive without loosing precious things? (last solution)

    Have you tried to reinstall your game with another setup.exe than yours?

    Phil - every time you try to restart the Game, the reiza folder will be created again. You need to uninstall GSC, delete the reiza folder, reinstall GSC and then run it (as an admin). It should work then.
