Clean (re)install instructions

The most important part it to have a clean install. If you have any problems, ALWAYS follow these instructions FIRST, BEFORE posting anything. Many problems are solved if you follow these instructions.

  1. First off, uninstall any previous game versions. Use an uninstaller like cccleaner (it is free, just click on the download links and don't get "tricked" into buying the support version) or Revo Uninstaller (also free), as the windows tools are... poor. Also, check for any remaining registry edits that need to be removed. cccleaner/Revo can do that for you.
  2. If you use Windows 7/Vista, Microsoft has added so-called "compatibility files". Basically, anything that gets changed in the C:\Program Files directory will be put into the compatibility files. So, you'll need to delete those files as well. Either click on "compatibility files" in the windows explorer, or go to C:\Users\YOUR-NAME-HERE\AppData\Local\VirtualStore and search for the Paradox folders in there.
  3. Manually delete all remaining Sengoku folders
  4. Reinstall the game. Do not install the game to C:\Program Files (this will save you a lot of trouble with the compatibility files). Instead, install it to C:\games\Sengoku, or any other directory not in C:\Program Files.
  5. If you use Steam, then it is possible to move the entire Steamapps folder to somewhere else outside of C:\Program Files: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7710-tdlc-0426
  6. Right-click on the Sengoku icon and select the options to disable desktop composition, and to run as the Windows Admin user.
  7. If you have Win7/Vista, disabling UAC can also help
  8. That's it, run the game to see if it works.

Required software

Sengoku needs some software libraries installed for it to work. You will need:

  1. The latest version directx9 (yes, 9. Even if you already have 10 or 11). Get it from microsoft here.
  2. The Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package
  3. The Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update
  4. The Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

Some users in the V2 forum have reported that if they installed all .NET software from the windows update site, their problems stopped as well.
