[SOLVED] Error 5001 & Menu Items empty ?!
Hi, instead of trying to explain my problems with an aproximative english, 2 screens will explain what is wrong.

First :

This is very annoing, because of this error ( ERR5001 File open failed... ) the AI doesn't do anything : no attacks, etc. During the campaigns, for eg, you can wait for a very long time the assault, it will never come, because the AI is "crashed" . You can still win by usual ways, but it's boring against an AI who doesn't fight back...

So a friend give me an advice " delete the local content, and re download the game ".
Ok.. I was doubfull, but I try. And... It gets even better :

Now, I still have the previous bug, but I have one more :

All menu items are empty... WTF ? oO

My OS is W8, but I don't think it's related, nevertheless.

-If you reboot your computer, you'll receive your text for your menu items back. =]

thanks, it's work.

Do you have any other "magical" idea to solve the first error ? ^_^

If you have any mods installed, I'd suggest removing them. Then run Steam as admin, verify your game cache, and start the game as admin. If it works, you can start adding the mods back in one by one to see which one is causing this.

The game cache is fine.

Apparently, something is wrong with permisions, everything is fine when I start steam as admin, ang the error come back when I start as user... The OS likes to have fun with me ^^'

Thx for your help ;)
