So i bought this game back around the time it came out, It worked great i was even on it yesterday then today i go to log in and keep getting this messge -

Dof.exe has stopped working

I launch the game and the laucher comes up and checks all files like noraml and then says game files updated successfully like noraml then i hit play and that is when the Dof.exe stopped working messge hits every time know :(

and i tryed repairing the game redownloading it and reinstalling it, restoreing my pc to the day before when it worked fine but nothing is working :( all my other games seem to be working just DOF is doing this i don't understand why.

so thank you for any help in gettting this sorted so i can play once again :)

Some things you can try.

1) make sure you restart the computer - if you haven`t this could cause that.

2) Disable Anti Virus and Firewall - and if that works set DofUpdater.exe as exception

3) When you start the updater, try to right click - and Start as Administrator (or Run as Administrator)

4) Try installing C runtime libraries. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555

5) Try getting the latest .Net Framework (free download, just google it)

6) To confirm you already tried using the latest client located here? http://dofgame.com/download/DoFInstaller.exe

7) Lets try uninstall one more time, but this time also removing temp updater files:

a.) Go to your user directory (C:\Users\Your User Name Here) with 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' enabled (see here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-see-hidden-files-in-windows/) for details), the folder AppData should appear.
b.) Navigate from your user directory to AppData, and then to Local. For more instruction, see:

c.) There should be a folder named DoFUpdater there, delete it.
