I uninstalled the game, opened up the folder, and tried reinstalling it as an administrator. It didn't help; the same Microsoft Visual Error (Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation assembly 'policy 8.0 Microsoft VC80.ATL.type="win32-policy".version=8.050727.publicKeyToken=1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b."prfrocessorArchitecture="x86.
I also tried downloading MSVCR80.DLL and putting it in my Elemental folder, but it didn't have any effect. MSVCR90.DLL is already in there. When I try to launch the game, I get this message:
"C:\Program Files\Stardock Games\ Elemental\ Elemental.exe
The Application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrrect. Please see the application event log for mor detail."
