    Default Setup Failed - Windows 11 Pro

    After doing *everything possible* to reinstall after some critical files got deleted, I managed to install KeeperFX 1.0.0 and tried to set up and launch DK. Now it errors out every time it tries to launch.

    The end of the log file (with the only relevant errors, from what I can tell) is as follows:
    Error: LbDataLoadAll: Can't load file "data/creature.tab"
    Error: initial_setup: Unable to load game_load_files
    Sync: reset_game: Starting
    LbDataFree: freeing "*SCRATCH"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "*TEXTURE_PAGE"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "data/palette.dat"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "data/bluepal.dat"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "data/redpall.dat"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "data/lightng.pal"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "data/dogpal.pal"...done
    LbDataFree: freeing "data/vampal.pal"...done
    Error: In source LbBullfrogMain:
    2 - Setting up game failed.

    What is causing this, and how do I correct it??? (No command line parameters or coding please - I'm not a complete newbie, but I'm not a programmer either.)

    Background: I used a duplicate file finder (software) to clean up a LOT of duplications on my system. Unfortunately, some of those were in the KeeperFX and Keeper folders, and I had chosen the option to permanently delete the duplicates instead of sending them to the Recycle Bin (oh dopey me).

    I thien tried to install DK straight from the CD, but no amount of compatibility switches would get it to do anything at all. I even tried creating a flat and installing from there - no dice.

    Finally, I created an XP virtual machine (with VirtualBox) and was able to install it on that, then copied the Keeper folder to one of my SSDs. This is where I pointed KeeperFX in trying to get it to run, and this is where I got the errors that are driving me CRAZY!!!

    keeperfx doesn't need any compatibility modes, using them will make things worse
    I'd say redownload the full release, run the launcher click install and point it to your old install, if it's successful you can throw out the broken install
    if it can't find the required files in the old install you could point it to the cd as well, no need to run the installer on the cd

    I wasn't running KeeperFX in compatibility mode, I was trying to install DK in compatibility mode ...

    Anywho, reinstalling KeeperFX 1.0.0 worked, it's running fine now. Thanks.
