Prerequisite Software Packages

Our game software requires that these packages be installed on your PC. They are part of the original clean installation package and do not normally require reinstallation. However, if they become corrupted or have been accidently deleted our game software will not function properly, so you'll need to reinstall them. Your drivers may also fall out of date over time.
