mars.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point__CxxFrameHandler3 could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll

What is this? This is what I get instead of a game when I try to start Sword of the Stars 2.

Yes and I still get the error. Any idea what is causing this to happen?

Try manually installing the required files for frameworks, direct x and such. Sometimes steam does not do this properly and game fails to run.

DirectX is up to date. Going to check .net framework next.

I have .net framework 4.0 installed, which is the best I can get for Windows XP. They have 4.5 out, but I can't install that.

The game comes with that stuff, install it to make sure you have all you need for the game. Up to you however.

I recommend all inquiries be directed to the official kerberos forums where tech support is involved.

"Windows XP"

There's your problem :(

You need vista and upwards, the game engine is not compatible with XP sadly.

Not a big deal. I plan on getting a new PC sometime next year anyway. So I can look forward to playing SotS2 then.
