Hi - I have downloaded and installed Prepar3d and cannot get it to load the first time.

The error I am getting says "Prepar3d was unable to load some program files and will now exit. Please reinstall Prepar3d to restore or repair the program installation."

I have re-installed 3 times, repaired the installation once and after each attempt to run the Prepar3d.exe I still get the same message. I followed the download and install notes and have not had any luck.

Anybody had a similar problem or know what I need to do?

Thanks for your help-

You may need to get the latest dierectx9 from Microsoft as win 8.1 doesn't come with it, and or other prerequisites?
