    If I remember correctly, that had to do with a botched game update that corrupted a Microsoft Visual C Runtime library, forcing many people to have to reinstall the runtime library. That was quite a while ago, however, and should not be affecting anyone anymore.

    The only other external download or update the game has required of some is a DirectX update to version 9. If you're still using DirectX 8 or lower, you can get the latest DirectX system by simply going to the Windows Update site and selecting Custom update. The DirectX updates will be in the Optional Updates list.
