I just received my copy of Puerto Rico PC in the mail today. Installed...receive an error message on launch. Re-installed...same message. Installed on laptop...same message.

So curious if anyone has actually been able to install, launch, and play the english version.

I noticed some posts on Eagle Games forums of individuals experiencing the same problem as myself.

I received mine today and installed it. It ran fine. I'll be testing another computer tomorrow.

I had the same problem. I sent an email to Eagle Games and got a response within 2 hours. Apparently the company is aware of the issue and they have a good idea about how to fix it. They are hoping to release a patch shortly.

Wow that stinks. I am expecting to get my copy sometime this week and I would hate to get home and find out I cannot play.

For those having trouble could you post some system specs for your PC? Like which version of windows, ram etc. Maybe there is a common reason amongst people who cannot run it (like older windows version). Also if anyone gets a response from Eagle or a workaround please post it.

I received my copy on Monday and tried it on 2 computers, worked fine on both. I'd never played again, so cannot comment on the AI. I'm starting to figure it out. I was hoping the tutorial would be more of a tutorial, instead it's really just the rules. The specs for the computers that worked:

P4 - 3Ghz, 1GB RAM, XP Pro, ATI 9800 Pro
Athlon 3200 - 768MB RAM, XP Home, motherboard graphics

All drivers are up to date.

Hi Fusaro,

I am not sure why you haven't heard back, I have tried to respond to every e-mail I received. Here is my e-mail keith@eaglegames.net.

The vast majority of problems seem to revolve around what resolution is supported. If you drop me an e-mail I can send you the test file that appears to be working (it is not an official patch, but it appears this will be included in the patch).

Keith

Hi!

Yep, I did not receive an e-mail back but I'm glad you found me here!
I just sent you and e-mail asking for the patch.

Hope to here from you soon!

Good job for being able to reach me here by the way.

Thanks again,

Fusaro

Guys,

I was having problems running my Puerto Rico version and Keith from eagle games got in touch with me and sent me a patch. I haven't played throughly but the patch seems to have corrected the problems I had.

If you are also having the same problems, I suggest you get in touch with Keith, he was very responsive and provided excellent customer service.

Best,

Fusaro

Well this convinces me not to buy PR for the PC.

This type of problem should have been cought in testing.

I just wanted to say thank you to Eagle for issuing the patch so quickly and for actually posting on this BGG forum.

I've just patched the game to 1.2 version, but it stills crash on startup.

I run it on my laptop at 1280x800 res, and as long as I read that should be the problem, right?

Where I could find the aforementioned files by Keith Blume? The Eagle games forum appears to be unavailable at the moment.

Cheers.
