Hey Meat Forum,
I am having a bit of a problem. I bought and downloaded Super Meat Boy from steam some time in late December, and when It first finished downloading it gave me this message:
Program: c:\program f...
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an
Please contact the application's support team for more information
I then looked it up and learned that updating your Visual C++ might help, so I did that (I updated from Visual C++ 2005 to Visual C++ 2010) and I got it to work. The game ran perfectly for about a week after the C++ update, but then one day I brought my laptop to a friends house to show him the game and the Runtime error was back again.
I looked up the problem again searching stuff like "How to fix a Visual C++ runtime error" "how to fix a runtime error" and "Super Meat Boy runtime error" I came across a bit more information than I did the first time and found out about some more things I could update. I also learned that getting a registry cleaner may clear up problems on your computer that cause runtime errors. I decieded to try the updates first before I downloaded another program. I updated my Framwork .NET and my DirectX. After those updates Super Meat Boy ran fine for about a week and then again out of no were the runtime error came back. So I downloaded a free registry cleaner "Registry Easy" and got rid of a bunch of little problems with my PC, but that didn't make the SMB runtime error go away. So I "Downloaded" a full Registry cleaner called "Uniblue RegistryBooster 2011" I cleaned up even more imperfections on my computers registry and that actually worked in making meat boy run again... unfortunately like the other fixes this one lasted a little over a week and then the runtime error reared its ugly head once again.
On and off for the past couple months I have been trying to fix this runtime error for good, but I can't seem to find anymore fixes. I'v been searching help sites and reading forum post after forum post yet I cant seem to find any possible solutions that I haven't already tried. Randomly the game will work out of the blue for one day and then If I try to play it again the next day the runtime error is back. I have reached the bottom of the barrel as far as what I can find on the internet. but I am hoping that there is some one out there who knows a fix I haven't tried.
-My Laptop is a Dell inspiron 1525 32bit system
-I am running Windows Vista: Home Premium with Service Pack 2
-My Visual C++ is 2010, My Framwork .NET is 4 and as far as I can till I have the latest DirectX update installed
If you need anymore info on my system and what updates I have please let me know. I am begging for a permanent solution for this Runtime error, PLZZZZZZZZ HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
