    Hey guys, I'm having a little well big problem with RF2, I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium x64, and today decided I would install RF2 again, it was all working before I did a fresh install of W7 but now, when I try to open RF2, I get this error message.

    This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows".
    Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

    Well I can say reinstalling didn't fix it, I tried the big 1.06gb DL and the Lite version of RF2 even tried the demo, to no avail, I'm completely stumped here and any help would be greatly appreciated, I have googled it already and only one I could find was related to rF2, and he solved it by upgrading to windows 8.1 but I don't want to do that.

    So please, someone help me out, PLEASE! :)

    EDIT: Please ignore now, seems my computer wanted to be an asshole to me. Don't know what fixed it all I know is its fixed :D
