View Full Version : rts.dll error!

04-16-2005, 12:43 AM
I hope someone could shed some light on this one;

I have re-installed PF - Stand Alone after a fresh start with my hard drive but when I try to play the game after installing I receive the following message;

pf.exe - unable to locate component

This application has failed to start because rts.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Now, I did what was suggested - and I got the same error message.

Anyone who could help or give me solution I would be most appreciative.

Go to Ubisoft solution center (http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/ubisoft.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=10061)

Only a "backup"-CD, right? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No - it's the original disks - I'm at a loss to know why it would not install properly - having said that I haven't played the game for a while so I cannot remember having the same error message when I first installed the game! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

There's an easy 3-step fix for that:
1) Go to shop
2) Buy game
3) Install

Ok ok, I believe you (maybe) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
All I can think of is uninstall and completely delete all related directories and registry keys. Then re-install and see if the original 3.00 version works before installing any patches. Otherwise, contact Ubi (or install a good crack http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

I've had this problem before. I fixed it by finding the rts.dll on the cd and dragging and dropping it into the IL2 folder. I hope this works for you.

Yeah, it's really strange that software sometimes does this - thanks for the suggestions - the first reply worked perfectly! I managed to get the file downloaded from Ubisoft website. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

yeah i had the same problem. (original game)

The rts.dll only copy the file name...ie 0 bytes. On the disk (think no 2) there is a rts.dll. Just copy it to the same location as the 0 byte one.
