Reinstall, perhaps?

Are you using mods/custom gateways? Try removing those. Otherwise, deinstall, RegCleaner, reinstall.

Oh! And if you can, try running it on another system and see if it works there...

Greets,

Am I missing something obvious (like it isnt really that path) or does it look like he has the source or something

Look above

Its an assertion failure, which is defined at design-time and contains a reference to which source file the failing code is in. Someone with the dev disk could find that line and find whatever subtle error is causing the problem.

But without the source all you can do is find a list of assertions and see what the known cause/fix is. I dont know if there is such a list for uplink though.

Maybe people could make one now with the knowledge of the devcd and what it will bring

Alright.   I just bought a copy of the game, however, when I tried to install it, it complained of 2 missing DLLs.  So I found them on the internet, and placed them in the directory.  now I'm receiving a fatal error.   Here's the debug.log:

The funny thing is, the demo worked fine and dandy on my machine.  I've tried installing the same game on 2 different machines, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game several times, and I'm completely confused as to why it's not working.

If anyone could shed some light onto this situation, I'd be very happy.

Thanks for your time and patience!
