openal32.dll is missing
Whenever I try to play the game, it tries to load up the microsoft residst, and then comes up with the error "The program can't start because OpenAL32.dll is missing from your computer".

I've tried reinstalling, a registry check, virus/spyware scan, windows update, xp compatibility mode, ran as admin. nothing works.

The game used to run fine.

I'm on Windows 7 32 bit.

Update: It's always the way, spend 2 hours trying to fix the problem. Give in, and post on a forum. 2 minutes later you fix it.

Go to the Harvest folder in steam, there should be a folder named prerequisites, install the one called openAL. Steam seems to be having problems doing that automatically. Mine is running now.
