General

Q. Clicking on the autorun. The following error message is displayed 'The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect'.

A. This error is caused by .net missing or requires an update. If you using .net 2 or below, please upgrade to the latest version of .net. You can download .net from Windows Update as an optional update or use Control Panel/Windows Update on Windows Vista & 7. Otherwise, you can download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/NET/

If you do not wish to install .net you can run each games installation setup individually from the DVD and then the game folder.
 For example to run the installation for Stronghold Legends the setup would be within the SHL folder or Stronghold Crusader would be within the SHC folder.

Q. The bonus pack isn't installing on Stronghold Legends - Direct2Drive version

A.  Unfortunately, the bonus pack will not install on the Direct2Drive version of the Stronghold Collection.

It is possible to solve this problem by using a workaround that requires you to edit your computer's registry settings.

WARNING: Modifying your registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system.  Use the information provided at your own risk.  Always backup your files before modifying your registry.

1) Run Regedit

2) Search for the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths

3) With App Paths selected choose Edit>New>Key and create StrongholdLegends.exe

4) Click on the StrongholdLegends.exe key you have just created and add the following 2 string values (Edit>New>String Value):
(The string paths are obviously dependant on where the game is installed)

Path
C:\\Program Files\\2K Games\\Stronghold Legends

@
C:\\Program Files\\2K Games\\Stronghold Legends\\strongholdlegends.exe

5) Exit regedit and run the Bonus Pack installer.
