Although this won't help you to get the game going...Happy Muffin Top is the name of the game developer.

Thanks for that, I thought it was a virus!
I've never had a message like the one I keep getting. Tried compatability settings, run as administrator...but all roads lead back to this shared data issues.
I'm sure the devs shouldn't be included in the file. I've W7 64-bit......
I've uninstalled it. Will try reinstalling and try again!

Second download still not working.....I've run out of ideas boo hoo :-((

Problem seems to be that the file is application data, but W7 only has appdat so, it's not finding it. Oh well, roll on tomorrow......

I got it to download ok, but once into the game my cursor was very jerky. Went back to start over and didn`t find where or if you could change cursors. Did finish the short game introduction in about 35 minutes even with the jumpy corsor.

My husband, being the genuis he is cracked my tech issue. We had to create a new file location for the game. Once done it started the trial without any further hiccups.The file name didn't tie up with any file locations in my laptop. Never had that before. If anyone else has this issue, I'll gladly let you know what you need to do!

I really like this game, just wish it didn't take so long for my computer to change between scenes. My screen goes black and I can see the cursor but I have to wait for the next scene to come on. I don't usually have any trouble with BF games but this time there is. I am hoping someone can help me. Thanks

I can't get this game to start on any computer from XP to Win 7 x64 (I have 6). Just goes right back to the game manager. I can usually do a workaround with no problem, but not here.

Wierd

Got a new error message Fallen Shadow create DX7 serface failed... what the heck is that lol game shutdown.

4/28 guess they are waiting for the dev for a fix. Thought I would try game again to see what happened.. game didnt save uggg. Started at the beginning and froze immediately at the frozen fountain. oh well.

Hope we get a fix soon.

Somehow it makes me feel a tad better to see that others are having the exact trouble that I am. So I can't test it even though I'm wondering why I woke up dead.

I can only play the game in window mode - which makes it too small to see properly. When i play it in full screen (no matter what resolutions my screen is set at) it auto adjusts so that it is square shaped (I have a wide screen) with the top and bottom of the pic running off the screen, and thus inaccessible.
Am I the only one having this problem? Looks like it'll be a great game if it would play properly.

My game has also frozen at the frozen statue, started again with a new profile and same happened when I went into the house.
