    Default M2TW Gold - unspecified error...

    OK, I finally splashed out on a copy of M2TW Gold (DVD version), now I think my current machine can cope. It seems to have installed ok, with all the Kingdoms stuff. BUT I had no manual (2nd hand) and trying to launch it just results in an 'unspecified error'.

    Now, I see the ReadMe makes mention of needing an internet connection for the launcher, which is a PiTA as this machine is not connected, and I really went for a disc version to avoid any Steam stuff. Is it really the case I can't run it all without getting online? That will mean splashing out even more for WiFi...

    Anyone out there with experience of this package???

    Edit to add: System log shows this:

    Are these missing files an install problem or just stuff that would be generated once it gets going?
