Having issues with Signs of Life? Try these steps:
Common Solutions
First, try verifying your game files by right clicking on Signs of Life in Steam, selecting properties, then go to the tab labelled "Local Files", then click "Verify integrity of game cache". If that doesn't work...

Try updating your graphics card drivers, once they are up to date...

Try manually installing the .NET and XNA files located in:

Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Signs Of Life\_CommonRedist\DotNet
Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Signs Of Life\_CommonRedist\XNA

.Net should be installed first and then XNA.

If that doesn't work, you might also try running DXSetup.exe in:
Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Signs of Life\_CommonRedist\DirectX\Jun2010

Game crashes on launch
Try temporarily disabling your firewalls or virus scanners and see if that lets you play Signs of Life. If it does, let us know either here or through email at playsignsoflife@gmail.com and let us know what virus scanner/firewall you were using.

You might also try running the game from the install directory, and if that doesn't work try running the game from the install directory in compability mode for windows XP service pack 3.

Game crashes on launch and you use Comodo Firewall[www.comodo.com]
Comodo's Behaviour Blocker has issues with XNA, so try opening Comodo and shut down the anti-virus, behaviour blocker and firewall, or add an exception for Signs of Life.

Game crashes on launch, but it previously ran fine
Try deleting the settings file at My Documents/My Games/Signs of Life/Saves/Settings.s3db and try again. If the game still won't launch, let us know.

These are just some fixes that people have found worked for them, so let us know if any of these solutions work or if none of them do and hopefully we'll eventually squash all the bugs =)

Goobish, when you try to launch the game does it crash or just do nothing at all? Also, yeah, your system specs would be useful as well.

It just does nothing at all. I'm on Windows 7 64-bit, 2.8 ghz processor, 3gb ram, and my video card is just a Nvidia that came with the computer. Geforce 6150SE nForce 430.

If none of the solutions above work for you then I'm afraid the issue may be your graphics, unless I'm mistaken the 6150 is integrated graphics rather than an actual graphics card, and our game may not support it =( I'll continue googling and see if I can figure anything out for ya.

Yeah it is integrated. It's ok we're getting a gaming computer sometime in the next month so I'm not too worried about it. Just wish I could start playing sooner! It looks really fun :)

Ah, well I apologize for it not running on your current machine, I'm glad you'll be able to play it soon on a new machine at least =)
