FAF Client Fails to Start

Postby BushMaster » 20 Dec 2017, 01:53

Ever since updating the FAF client earlier this year (6+ months ago), I get this when trying to start it:

I've tried reinstalling the client several times with/without A/V on and nothing changes, and I couldn't find any similar issues anywhere... I do have Downlord's client mostly working, but I would prefer to get this client up and running, if that's even possible.

Just a guess because i have no clue about the pyton client.

But it looks like you have Python 3.6 Installed, and you are missing a DLL file.
Maybe it would help to deinstall or reinstall the python Interpreter ?

Back when we were moving to python 3 and qt 5, we had to pick qt libraries and files to be packaged by the installer by hand. It seems we missed some library that's required in very rare cases.
Which client version are you using? It'll help us figure out which python module is triggering the error.
FAF python client is dead. Bug java client devs if you have issues!
