i am having problem w the launcher the below message appears after i press the play button
.. my install was working fine except i was getting the dreaded blue screen 3 or 4 times during game play and i decided that cant be healthy for my machine ... copied my install to an empty drive that i use for back ups and things
reinstalled windows after i installed XP SP3 and copy and pasted back to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\
it original DIR and ran the repair launcher in side the EA folder
i had read in the forms how this worked for ppl and i also there are a ton of issues w moving the install ..
i just got done re downloading the install 2 days ago just before i started getting blue screens
PLZ don't try to tell me i have to re download everything at 3mbs
its like a 3 day download
aside from that message every thing looks good graphics are up to date SP's any suggestions ??
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002) click ok to terminate the app

Hi guys,

This error generally refers to a problem with the .NET framework that is currently installed on your system. I would recommend to download and install the latest redistributable packs to help with this issue. The links for the downloads can be found in the spoiler below:


Once you have installed these please restart your system and then try to launcher the game again.

Please let me know if this helps.
